Pain and the "Ouchless" Emergency Department
Pain is the leading cause of visits to the Emergency Department. We are striving to make our Emergency Department as pain free or "ouchless" as possible in a safe and effective manner. We encourage you to discuss your concerns with your child's doctor or nurses regarding any pain related issues.
We want you to know that we are also concerned about your child's well-being and will do everything we can to make your child's visit with us a positive experience. Your child will be cared for by dedicated medical professionals. Many have received specialized education and training focused on the care of sick and injured children.
Within our emergency department, there is a section specifically designed for our pediatric patients. Through the generous gifts of the Children's Miracle Network, this area has local wildlife and nature scenes on the walls, as well as the equipment and supplies needed to treat our pediatric patients.
