Chung, S., Monteiro, S., Hogencamp, T., et al. (2011). Pediatric Alternate Site of Care during the 2009 H1N1 Pandemic. (Abstract only.) Pediatric Emergency Care. 27(6): 519-26.
The authors describe the design, implementation, and performance of an alternate site of care for non-urgent pediatric patients with influenza-like illnesses (ILI) during the 2009 H1N1 pandemic. They found that select non-urgent patients with ILI were treated safely and efficiently with a high level of family satisfaction in these non-traditional settings.
