... And from what you see of the work of the trauma service, when they resuscitate adult major trauma victims, do they have family present (spouse, adult offspring or sibling)?


Why I ask is that right next door, within the same location, your gang does let family in when resuscitating children, with FWR being "standard of care"...

Thanks for the answer.

We are a 40,000 a year peds ED with an 80,000 a year adult ED. The trauma service is a general trauma service that cares for the kids. The do a good job but are not peds focused.

I think it's pretty much standard policy for parents to attend. Still, if anyone has another standard, perhaps you could share.


For the rest, could I please ask:


Is it only "parents", or do you accept other relatives/guardians?


If you are not at a peads-only place, at what age (if any) is this policy limited? I.e. is there an age beyond which you no longer permit relatives/parents to observe?


Thanks.
