Emergency health care providers care for nearly 22 million sick and injured children under age 15 each year (Center for Disease Control-CDC), the vast majority of whom have good outcomes. Everyone is only one step away from a medical emergency. Having a child’s medical conditions/allergies and caring medical providers names can help tremendously.
