HOSPITALS RECOGNIZED FOR THEIR CHILD EMERGENCY CARE CAPABILITIES

Since 1998, over 100 hospitals within Illinois (including two hospitals in Iowa) have received recognition by the Illinois Department of Public Health and the Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC) program for having the essential resources and capabilities in place to meet the emergency and critical care needs of seriously ill and injured children.

This program recognizes hospitals that enhance their emergency departments and pediatric departments to meet the unique needs of pediatric patients.

Children are not small adults. To provide the appropriate care for children requires special training, equipment and supplies. They cannot be cared for in emergency care systems initially developed for adult patients.

Hospitals can apply for one of three levels of voluntary recognition.  Facilities that have a pediatric intensive care unit and can provide specialty inpatient services for the pediatric patient can seek recognition as a Pediatric Critical Care Center (PCCC).  Hospitals that can provide comprehensive emergency services and meet pediatric emergency care requirements are recognized as an Emergency Department Approved for Pediatrics (EDAP).  The Standby Emergency Department for Pediatrics (SEDP) recognition is for hospitals that can provide stabilization measures and have transfer agreements in place when more definitive care is needed.  Note that those centers applying for the PCCC level must have attained EDAP status. 

Hospitals seeking one of these voluntary designations receive a site visit by the EMSC program staff to verify that the emergency department and pediatric department are capable of meeting the following key pediatric care standards based on the level being applied for:

  • Professionals specially trained in pediatric emergency and critical care;
  • Adequate staffing and provisions for pediatric consultation and backup;
  • Availability of essential pediatric equipment, supplies and medication;
  • Protocols for the treatment of critically ill and injured children, and protocols to assist in the transfer process;
  • Conduction of pediatric quality improvement activities.
