Pediatric nurses provide the comprehensive care needed to the children and adolescents, as well as their families.
Physical and mental disabilities as well as acute or chronic illnesses or injuries are managed by nurses doing continual assessments as well as using a specialized pain assessment tool to help manage their comfort and safety.
Education is key to help patients and families understand treatment and the importance of after hospital care.
