Lincoln’s Pediatric Critical Care Team
Our team includes board-certified surgeons, pediatricians, physicians, nurses, radiologists, social workers and pediatric health professionals who provide emergency care to children seven days a week, 24-hours a day. Certified child life specialists are available to support and prepare children and families for difficult procedures.
When it’s an Emergency
When a child is seriously injured in an accident, seek emergency care immediately. You should bring your child to the Pediatric Emergency Department if the child is having an asthma attack that you cannot get under control. If the child is experiencing a seizure that lasts longer than five minutes or does not wake between seizures, this is considered a medical emergency, come to the hospital.
If a child has sustained serious injuries and child abuse is suspected, bring the child to the hospital. If you are unsure and do not know what to do, contact our Child Advocacy Center. The Center’s team of health care specialists can help evaluate the child and report your suspicions.
If there are any other emergency health concerns about your child, you can also call our telephone triage, which is available 24 hours a day.
Our Pediatric Emergency Department is designed to ease the fears of young patients and their families. We take pride in providing our patients with culturally competent, comprehensive emergency care in a safety and patient-friendly environment.
