Emergency Room Visits

My son has Hemophilia ..he is factor VIII severe less than 1%
I have his factor and doctor orders with me
We need to be seen right away
This is my opening line at the Emergency Room

I have not had to visit the Emergency Room for some time and I do not miss that
Being prepared for the visit makes everyones life less stress full
Make sure you inform them as you walk in the door that your child has hemophilia
Discuss with your treatment center the best procedure for you at the emergency room
Ask lots of questions so you can focus on your child at this time and not on learning the hospitals procedures-- such as bringing your own factor.

Does anyone out there has some suggestions or emergency room stories they would like to share?
