I do not understand sometimes why people bring their children, especially infant children, to the ER where I work. Their is not one Pediatrician in this entire hospital. Not one. I understand that if you are right near the hospital and something happens to your child, you want to take them to the closest possible place, but we get people here that LITERALLY go right past CHOP with their infant children and come here. I don't get it. I also don't get why Medics bring children here too. They know we are not a childrens hospital. Why wouldn't they bring them to a childrens hospital? Philadelphia has quite a few of them. Good ones too. Is there a rule that medics have to follow about where they take patients? I really don't know, I am not trying to bust balls or anything. Obviously ER docs are qualified to treat children, but it seems like if you have the choice of a Pediatric ER doc, wouldn't you rather take your kid there?
