The idea of being apart from a child in an emergency situation is troubling for most parents. But there’s no need to worry when coming to the Julia and George Argyros Emergency Department at CHOC Children’s Hospital. Our staff is dedicated to providing a positive experience for the entire family. We are committed to making the entire family part of all decisions and treatments provided whenever possible. We even provide larger than average exam rooms in order to accommodate family members, siblings and strollers. Each room also features a television to help distract sick or injured children and keep siblings entertained. 

It is important to know, however, that there may be times that only parents will be allowed with the patient due to the urgency of care needs or in the case of certain tests, like X-rays. In general, parents should use good judgment when bringing siblings to the Emergency Department. A visit can be a long process, and small children might grow inpatient. It is also important for parents to be able to focus on their ill child, as they will be given a lot of information and will be asked many questions by our staff. Learn more about the CHOC Children's associates who will work with patients and families in the Emergency Department.
 
Whether siblings will be in tow or not, parents, patients and siblings alike will receive guidance and support from Emergency Department staff throughout their time at CHOC Children's. We are with you every step of the way.
