Compassionate in an Emergency.
A child in need of emergency care can be a parent’s worst fear. The team at HSHS Good Shepherd made Julie and her daughter feel safe and cared for during a recent medical scare. Watch as she expresses her gratefulness for the compassion they experienced.
Children have unique medical problems and may display different symptoms than adults. Symptoms that are serious for a child may not be as serious for an adult. Children may also be unable to communicate their condition, which means an adult will have to interpret the behavior. When it comes to your child or a child under your care, seek immediate medical attention if you think they are having a medical emergency.
Medical emergencies are unexpected events and knowing that an experienced health care team is available around the clock and close to home should take the worry out of dealing with them when they occur.
