What is Pediatric Readiness?

Pediatric Readiness is ensuring that every EMS agency and emergency department has the right equipment, supplies, medications and training to provide high-quality emergency care for children. Every Child. Every Day. It is addressing system-level issues—policies, protocol and agreements, and not penalizing individual people or teams—that truly reduces morbidity and mortality for ill and injured children.
