i am going to start watching my friends son soon, and plan on watching one or two other children as well. what do they have to have for me saying that in the event of an emergency i can make a decision for the child until a parent gets there? i know if its life or death there won't be a question of if a child will be seen. but in events of extremely high fevers that won't go away, injuries that need to be seen (but can wait for parents) these kinds of things, that may come up what do i have to have in order for them to be seen til mom or dad get there? just want to be sure that is covered b/c you never do know, and i'd also like to do something for my mother b/c my kids spend the night w/her once a week (my oldest is a terror at least 5 trips a year to the er) so i want them to be able to be seen until i can get to the er. i'd hate for a child to be in pain or not feel well longer than necessary.
