An "Ouchless" Emergency Unit
Developed by Children’s Hospital emergency medicine physicians, the “ouchless” emergency unit employs a variety of techniques—including the use of nitrous oxide—to ensure patients experience as little discomfort as possible.
The pediatric emergency unit is designed to care for children with a variety of injuries and illnesses. Each patient receives ongoing assessment and diagnostic treatment. Throughout the course of patient care, radiology and laboratory services are also available, if required. In cases where more urgent care is needed, the staff will quickly arrange for patient transport to St. Louis Children’s Hospital.
Pediatric Acute Wound Service (PAWS) - West
The staff of the Pediatric Acute Wound Service (PAWS) are specially trained in burn and wound care, and treat children in the hospital and as outpatients. With PAWS, children who do not necessarily need to be hospitalized can have their wound issues addressed daily or several times a week in an outpatient setting. Services are available at Missouri Baptist Medical Center and also at St. Louis Children's Hospital. Learn more about PAWS.
