What discharge criteria are you using for pediatric patients?

usually if they are awake and screaming.. I want mommy... We get mommy and then they can go :)


Specializes in long term care, med-surg, PACU, Pre-Op.

Pretty similar to the adults, usually aldrete score 8 or 9 or above (unless going to peds ICU), stable airway, pain under control, no surgical issues, etc. Although peds patients often stay for only around 30 minutes.
