Accidents and Emergencies: what makes us different
A unique environment
Our department is dedicated exclusively to providing emergency care in children. Every year, we treat more than 121,000 paediatric emergencies.
In addition to the support of all of the SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital's specialists, we are very aware that Paediatric Emergency Medicine is very different from the adult equivalent. A child is not a miniature adult, and the family must also be included in the entire process.
Our specialists are training to combine the best medical care with empathy toward the patient and their family. This is especially necessary in an emergency, where communication also plays a fundamental role.
Our professionals are trained to be experts in paediatric emergencies. They are not merely duty doctors, but paediatricians trained to practice exclusively as such.
We have duty specialists in all specialties, who can be contacted for any emergency requiring intervention.
