Ferguson, Jane; Alpert, Joel J.
Journal of Medical Education, v55 n10 p876-78 Oct 1980
A survey of U.S. pediatric training programs to determine the role of rules in the hospital admission of pediatric patients is reported. The results support the hypothesis that rules are a widely used teaching tool. The rules relate to such factors as fevers, age, specific diseases, administrative concerns, head traumas, and poisonings. (JMD)
