Pediatric Readiness

What Resources Are Available to Improve An EDs Readiness Score?

Once the nurse administrator/manager receives a “Pediatric Readiness Score” and shares it with the facility's leadership and emergency department staff, he/she can return back to this website to access the Pediatric Readiness Toolkit. The "Readiness Toolkit" is a collection of resources, promising practices, and articles specifically designed to improve the pediatric readiness of their emergency department.

In addition to the toolkit, the EMSC Program has conducted a variety of webinars highlighting national assessment findings and the efforts underway to help hospitals improve their pediatric readiness. All webinars are archived for viewing at a later date.

Note that assessment data is held within a secure server and results will only be shared with the person completing the assessment and the state’s EMSC State Partnership grantee.
