Trauma Patient Stories

The Benedum Pediatric Trauma Program

While it is our hope that we wouldn't see any child in our ER, the fact is that in 2007 we saw 64,083 patients (including those seen in Fast Track). Many of them are children who have been injured in an accident. Below are links to a few of our patient stories.
