So dd is almost 7mos old and crawling and climbing everywhere. My husband and I were discussing our plan as to what would happen if she ever needed to be taken to the hospital and realized we don't know what to expect. It's not an idea I like to think about, but we would rather be prepared then make the wrong decision under duress. How does the ER handle unvaccinated children? Does my signature on a general consent to treat form allow them to administer shots they might deem necessary? I'm referring to not life threatening events..stitches, sprains, breaks, etc. How do I make sure they don't just decide to bring her up to date?
Edit: My husband can be a bit of a space cadet at times, but it was he who first asked this question. He's proud of himself, lol, so I thought I'd give him some credit. (Men are so silly. Haha)
