The Los Angeles County Emergency Department recognizes hospitals that equip their ERs with child-sized equipment and specially trained doctors and nurses who understand how a child's needs differ from adults.
Pediatric emergency room
Our emergency room has a dedicated pediatric unit staffed by a range of pediatric specialists. All of our board-certified pediatric doctors are trained to provide the sensitive bedside manner children need during an emergency.
After our doctors treat your child, they will provide the instructions and reading materials you need to care for your child at home. They instruct you on topics such as wound care, medication dosage and more. They also work with your child's normal pediatrician to ensure a quality continuum of care.
