Sent Home Abnormal Spoon Feed:

18% of children in this cohort were discharged from a pediatric ED with at least one abnormal vital sign. In all-comers, there was no significant difference in return rate between those discharged with or without abnormal vital signs. Those who, at time of discharge, had two or more abnormal vital signs or were less than 3 years of age were more likely to return.

Guided IVs Spoon Feed:

Ultrasound guided peripheral intravenous cannulation (PIVC) has been shown to be effective in some pediatric populations.

Lessons from Tuskegee Spoon Feed:

We need to understand our recent history.  The syphilis study is a story we must tell, internalize, and learn from so we won’t make the same mistakes again.
