When a child is hurt, parents want to bring him or her to the closest place possible. The CHRISTUS Southeast Texas Outpatient Center Mid County Emergency Room (ER) is conveniently located for just such worrisome occasions. When children visit the Mid County Outpatient Center ER, they may be more frightened or worried than their adult counterparts.
“Children don’t have the same understanding that adults do,” says George Davis, M.D., FACEP, site medical director for the Mid County Outpatient Center ER. “When children are scared, we take extra care to calm their fears.”
While distractions, such as a television show or a toy, can help during certain examinations and procedures, the most important part of caring for children is to treat them as if they were our own, according to Dr. Davis.“Based on what children are wearing or carrying, I’ll ask them some questions,” Dr. Davis says. “When we relate to children at their level, it puts everyone at ease, including their parents.”
