Pediatric Emergency Care
Baton Rouge's Only Pediatric Emergency Room
At Our Lady of the Lake Children's Hospital, we specialize in meeting the unique needs of children and families during medical emergencies.
Our award-winning emergency department is staffed entirely with physicians that specialize in caring for babies, children, teens and young adults, providing complete, coordinated care for your child in one location. We offer an excellent team of skilled pediatric physicians and a comprehensive range of specialists to provide your child with the highest level of care. We use all of the latest technology and specialized medical equipment, and can handle any emergency that arises.
Your child is in good hands. Our team recognizes how stressful illness or injury can be – not only to your child, but also to your family. We provide Child Life Specialists to help guide you and your child through the entire duration of care at our hospital. Our Child Life Specialists—who are trained to help children understand their diagnosis, prepare them for procedures and talk to them in terms they can understand—are available 24-hours a day to answer any questions you might have.
Ensuring Your Child's Utmost Comfort
While in the Emergency Room waiting area at our hospital, your child may have access to medication to make him or her feel better while waiting to see a physician. You may discuss this option with your nurse upon arrival. The hospital also has a wide variety of toys and books available, including handheld electronic gaming systems and televisions.
