KidsCare or Emergency Room?

Life-threatening injuries or illnesses call for emergency medical treatment. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, a child should be brought to the emergency room if he or she has any of the following warning signs:

  • Unconsciousness or no response when you talk to your child
  • Rhythmic jerking and loss of consciousness (a seizure)
  • Increasing effort or trouble breathing
  • Skin or lips that look blue, purple, or gray
  • Neck stiffness or a rash with fever
  • Increasing or severe, persistent pain
  • A cut that is large, deep, or involves the head, chest, or abdomen
  • Bleeding that does not stop after applying pressure for five minutes
  • A burn that is large or involves the hands, feet, groin, chest, or face
  • Any loss of consciousness, confusion, headache, or vomiting after a head injury
  • Estimation of child abuse

If you are unsure of whether your child is having a life-threatening medical emergency, go to the emergency room.

Walk-Ins and Scheduled Appointments

Because KidsCares accept a combination of walk-ins and scheduled, appointment-based visits, wait times may vary in order to accommodate more serious conditions that present.
