Personally I would not do so. Places patient and staff alike at risk. We as a whole are not usually competent in managing adult issues. I can't remember the last pediatric patient who was 25 that I've cared for. I see up until 17 unless it's a pediatric patient ie chd, cp brain tumors or leukemics with established pediatric sun specialist care.
