Pediatric Emergency Room pilot program for UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital at Mission Bay, in concert with Children’s Hospital Oakland.

The Pediatric Emergency Room (ER) project aims to create a new approach to emergency services that will treat the whole child and prevent future ER visits. Rather than simply addressing the immediate problem which brought the child to the emergency room, it provides screening to identify psychological and social risk factors in addition to the traditional biomedical considerations, and link the child and family to needed services in their community.
