Book Description

Chock-full of straightforward information, this eBook will prepare parents, grandparents, and caregivers for their child's unexpected emergency room visit.

Every year, one out of every 2.4 children will be seen in the nation's 6000 or so emergency rooms. Most children do not make it through childhood without at least one visit to the emergency room. It can be a cold, an earache, a cut, a broken bone from a fall, or a breathing emergency. Whatever the illness or injury, an emergency room visit can be overwhelming and even scary to the parent unfamiliar with the inside of an emergency room.

In order to obtain the best possible care for their child, parents will learn:

Being prepared for an emergency
What to know before an emergency
When to call for emergency help
When to go to the hospital
What to know before you go
What their pediatrician wants them to know
Who's who in the emergency room
Knowing their way around the emergency room
Why you have to wait so long
Tips on getting the best treatment
How to calm your child
The do's and don'ts of being in the emergency room

What to know before signing out
