The medical Review Committee meets twice a year to review all emergency medical helicopter landings at Seattle Children’s Emergency Department. This committee includes two representatives from neighborhoods surrounding Seattle Children’s, a representative from the City of Seattle Department of neighborhoods, a representative of Seattle-king County Department of Public Health, two physicians independent of Seattle Children’s and key medical and nursing leadership from Seattle Children’s Hospital.

In addition, an internal medical review team comprised of medical leadership and the nursing transport team from Seattle Children’s and Airlift Northwest meet monthly and review all landings on an ongoing basis.

The committees continue to find that the overwhelming majority of these emergency medical landings are limited to critically ill patients for whom immediate pediatric care or intervention is indicated. We continue to evaluate each situation to determine whether a safe alternative to the landing at Seattle Children’s is available.
