I´m a childrens nurse working at the emergency department at the Childrens Hospital. We need some better organisation with guidelines for triage and caring at the department. Books on these subject is none excisting in Sweden so I´m going to order from UK or US.
I would very much like to get some advice on what is good and what isn´t.
The titles i´ve come across is "Pediatric Triage Guidelines" by Kathleen A Murphy, "Manual of Pediatric Emergency Nursing" by Soud and Rogers and Manual of Pediatric Emergency Nursing
by Treesa Etheredge Soud, Janice Steiner Rogers.
I would be most greatful for comments on these books and suggestions on other books.
Thanks a million!!

The Emergency Nurse Association has the easiest to use and most concise triage tricks on Peds patients. They have a certification course called Emergency Nurseing Pediatric Course but the textbook maybe available without coming to the US and taking the course.

They also have triage guidelines.
