Information for Visitors
In the Cardon Children’s Emergency department, parents or guardians accompany their child through the treatment process.
If other family members or children accompanied you to the Emergency department, we ask that one parent, if possible, stay in the waiting area with them. Relatives and friends are asked to remain in the Pediatric Emergency department lobby area unless their presence is absolutely necessary for your child’s care. Staff will keep friends and family informed about your child’s care and treatment as much as possible.
Language & Interpretive Services
Language and interpretive services are available. Please ask your nurse or Emergency department receptionist about these services.
If you are waiting in our Emergency department for a family member or friend, please let the receptionist know if you leave the area for a time period.
The Emergency Departments at Banner Health are required by the Federal Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA) to medically screen each patient to determine his or her need for emergency medical treatment. If the patient has an emergency medical condition or is in active labor, EMTALA mandates that the medical center provide stabilizing care within its capabilities regardless of the patient's ability to pay.
