What is a Pediatric Emergency?

A pediatric emergency is any injury or illness that could threaten the life of an infant, child, or adolescent. Pediatric emergencies can include physical or psychological symptoms. Suspected poisoning, breathing issues, loss of consciousness, severe cuts or bone breaks, uncontrollable bleeding, head trauma, burns, or acting out of the normal can all be considered a pediatric emergency. When looking for a Penn emergency room or pediatric ER, it’s best to get to the closest emergency room whenever possible.

How Long is the Wait Time at a Pediatric ER?

Wait times for a pediatric ER always depends on how many patients are currently needing care at any given time. At all Penn Highlands emergency facilities, we aim to provide pediatric emergency care as promptly as possible.
