Project Overview
Currently, the SC EMSC program is working to develop a pediatric hospital recognition system. Through a standardized list of requirements including equipment, training, staffing, policies, procedures, and quality improvement, a survey team will assess the capability of hospitals requesting to be recognized as a Pediatric Ready emergency department. This program will help to ensure the appropriate equipment is in place as well as procedures to continue improving care of sick and injured children. As we progress, we will be able to monitor discharge diagnoses and outcomes to identify areas for improvement as well as strengths.
