Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Emergency Department at Memorial Hospital Miramar
The Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Emergency Department at Memorial Hospital Miramar offers a low sensory room and private exam rooms for patients who have autism or other sensory sensitivities. With autistic individuals being eight times more likely to visit an emergency room it’s essential to provide appropriate training for ER staff so that patients and their families and caregivers feel confident that they will receive supportive care.
