Emergency Care for Minors

Accidents or sudden illness can occur at any time or place. Unfortunately, many times parents or guardians are not available to give hospital emergency staff important health information about their child or the legal permission needed to provide necessary care.

In the case of a life-threatening emergency or one where a young person may develop complications, treatment would begin immediately. But for minor emergencies, a pre-consent form enables healthcare professionals to treat your child when you cannot be reached. Click here for a printable form.
