Descriptive correlational method was used in the research. Thirty (30) preschoolers admitted and brought to the emergency room of Dr. Jose P. Rizal National Medical Center and De La Salle University Medical Center prescribed to undergo intravenous insertion by their respective physicians were chosen using purposive sampling technique. The researchers patterned the assessment tool to Wong and Baker Behavioral Scale (1988) which enumerates the subject’s emotions along with the behavioral rating scale of Katz, Kellerman and Seiger (1980). Data was analyzed through mean and Pearson Product Moment Correlation. The study concluded that the variables correlate with one another proving that there is a significant relationship between the level of compliance to the presence of significant others during intravenous insertion of hospitalized preschoolers.
