What is the difference between pediatric urgent care vs ER?

Kids get hurt, often. They are learning how to do new things, start getting confident and trying to do new things, or just get over-excited. They run into walls, jump off their beds, stick things up their nose or in their ears. Whatever the reason, all kids do silly things, one thing is for sure, we can count on them injuring themselves or getting sick during the times their pediatrician’s office is closed.

Pediatric Urgent cares are available for minor, non-life-threatening situations. Assessment is critical no matter the age, but it is detrimental in pediatrics, children often can fully explain the symptoms they are feeling or what they are going through, this is why it is so crucial to assess each individual patient that walks through our doors.

However, there are times when a child is faced with a true emergency, this is where an emergency room visit becomes necessary and essential for your child. Some of the top reasons to visit an emergency room include:

  • Behavioral change followed by loss of consciousness
