What is Pediatric Readiness?

Children have unique physiological, emotional, and developmental characteristics that require specialized emergency care. Pediatric Readiness is ensuring that every EMS agency and emergency department has the pediatric-specific champions, competencies, policies, equipment, and other resources needed to provide high-quality emergency care for children.
