How to Prepare for a Trip to the Emergency Room

Caring for children can be hectic even on a good day. However, when your child becomes seriously ill or injured, things can become especially challenging. Having a plan in place can help you prepare for the worst, to help take some of the stress off your shoulders.

If your child has experienced an emergency:

  1. Call 911 when applicable
  2. Pack all of their current medications
  3. Bring any applicable insurance cards and a payment method
  4. Consider packing a favorite toy or blanket, chargers for phones, and a change of clothes
  5. Coordinate with the paramedics to ensure you are both headed to the nearest emergency room

At Bayhealth Emergency and Urgent Care Center, Total Care, we encourage you to be your child’s advocate and speak up whenever you have a question or concern. With emergency and urgent care all under one roof, our team makes it easier for your child to receive the right treatment for their needs.
