Martin Herman responded to the pregnant pediatric issue, to which I would
add that we rarely admit a young patient to Le Bonheur and consult OB for
the primary problem of the pregnancy. At some ages, the social issues are
better handled by us than at the adult hospitals. Eg. An 11y child impregnated
by the live in mother's boy friend vs a 17-18y highschool senior impregnated by
her boyfriend of two years.
