Are YOU Ready?
The majority of ill and injured children seek care at the closest emergency department (ED) in their community. It is critical that all EDs have the appropriate resources and staff to provide effective emergency care for children.
The main goal of the Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC) Program is to ensure that all children and adolescents receive appropriate care in an emergency. Thus the Minnesota EMSC Program championed with the National Pediatric Readiness Project, an important quality improvement assessment. The purpose of this effort is to ensure that your facility is ready, which is particularly important amidst the current pandemic. The best way to measure this is to hear directly from YOU!
We encourage EVERY ED in Minnesota to BE READY!
To access the assessment through our secure web-based system, simply visit the following website and follow the instructions: www.pedsready.org
Upon completion of this important assessment, you will receive:
- Immediate feedback in the form of a Pediatric Readiness Score and a Gap Analysis Report
- Free access to quality improvement resources to help address identified areas of need
But don’t take our word for it. Listen to Noah Wyle.
