Our Unique Approach

At Children’s, we have developed a care guideline to help our Emergency Department physicians identify patients in this high-risk population and guide these physicians in making admission decisions. Our inpatient care guideline uses the most up-to-date American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines on the medical stabilization of eating disorders. These guidelines support our team through a systematic treatment approach.
