The fall of 2022 marked an earlier and more severe pediatric viral crisis that most Children’s Hospitals and clinicians had not seen in years. On Nov. 14, 2022 the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and Children’s Hospital Association (CHA) declared an emergency to support a national response to the alarming surge of pediatric respiratory illnesses, including respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). With many Children’s Centers at or past capacity, many pediatric patients with bronchiolitis had to overflow to adult hospitals, urgent cares, and other partnering community Emergency Rooms.
