Welcome to the Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center clinical practice guideline (CPG) page. These public guidelines are meant for clinical care and educational purposes. Please remember that practice guidelines do not necessarily apply to every patient. A provider’s clinical judgment is essential. As always, clinicians are urged to document management strategies.
Our guideline goals include:
1. Our aim is to have one evidence based universal CPG that is not site specific.
2. Guidelines are separate from any order sets. This is an educational document with an overview of care.
3. These are broad guidelines that may be used by providers in office, inpatient, or emergency department settings.
