When a nurse receives a report of a child who appears to have a life-threatening illness, she or he must be ready to evaluate the child and determine whether or not to place the child under the care of a physician or hospital staff.
We’ve all seen the news reports about parents who have rushed into a hospital with a sick baby and have found that the staff has not been treating the child properly. Even if the staff is treating the child properly, as many have also reported, they may not be ready for a child’s admission to the hospital.
The first question to ask yourself is whether or not the staff at your hospital is ready for your child. If they are not, you should contact the hospital, make a list of the things that are not being done right (or are being done so poorly that it’s driving you crazy), and ask the staff to put a stop to these problems. If you are not ready for your child to be in the hospital, then you need to consider alternative options.
Yes, and that’s really the only recommendation I can give at this point. If you’re concerned about your child being exposed to a hospital environment, then you need to look for alternatives. Some of these alternatives include a home visit with a qualified health advocate, a place to stay with your child while you’re at the hospital, or even a home visit with a social worker.
I personally think it’s best to give your child a place to stay with you while you are away. You can also use a place to stay with your child while you are in the hospital. This is especially true for your child as it allows them to play, eat, and sleep where theyre most comfortable.
But you want to make sure that you aren’t leaving them alone with anyone who could hurt them or do something to them that could be very dangerous. A home visit with a health care provider is a good idea. Even if your child is not a medical professional, it will allow you to talk with them in a friendly setting and allow you to get a second opinion. A home visit with a social worker is also a good idea, but again, you should be talking with a social worker first.
While a home visit with a health care provider isn’t a bad idea, you might want to consider talking to a social worker first and asking them to talk to the pediatrician. Ask the social worker what sort of precautions they would take to ensure a safe environment for your child in a hospital. You can also talk to a pediatrician about any changes to your pediatrician’s care policy that you feel may have contributed to the patient harming him/herself.
It’s not just a matter of asking the health care provider to talk to the pediatrician. If your pediatrician refuses to talk to the social worker, you should absolutely speak to the pediatrician about the possible dangers to your child in a hospital setting. Also, you should be thinking about the other people that your child could be hurt by by not having a social worker in the hospital.
In the world of healthcare it is not unheard of to have a social worker in the hospital, but it is rare to encounter a situation where a social worker is trying to intervene on behalf of a child. In many cases, the social worker is just trying to help the child and the child is doing his/her own thing. Therefore, it is important to speak up so the social worker knows exactly what the child is doing and that you are not aware of something happening.
A great way to approach this is to have the social worker take a note of everything the child does. It will be very helpful to know what the child is doing, the time that he is doing it, and a description of what time of the day the activity occurred. For the social worker to make a note of these notes, it is important to have a good record of the activity.
