Pediatric Care Q & A

What is pediatric urgent care?

While you typically schedule an appointment with your child’s pediatrician for annual wellness exams, you can’t plan for the times when your child has an illness or pressing medical need that requires immediate attention.

The experienced providers at My Emergency Room 24/7 offer quick, convenient, and comprehensive care for babies, children, and adolescents with acute medical problems, ranging from serious illness to traumatic injury.

Which medical problems are considered urgent?

If your child has ever experienced a severe asthma attack, a persistently high fever, or an allergic reaction to a bug bite, you’ve already encountered an urgent pediatric medical problem firsthand.

Urgent pediatric care treats children who are affected by a short-term illness or symptoms that aren’t otherwise associated with an ongoing, chronic health problem. Some of the issues the team at My Emergency Room 24/7 treats most often include:

  • Flu and high fever
  • Mild dehydration
  • Cough and bronchitis
  • Ear infections
  • Sore throat
  • Sinus infections
  • Conjunctivitis (pink eye)
  • Allergic reactions
  • Insect bites and rashes
  • Minor asthma attacks

The providers at My Emergency Room 24/7 also offer urgent care for children affected by stomach aches, nausea and vomiting, severe constipation, and other acute digestive issues.

What is pediatric emergency care?

When your child has an illness or injury that seems especially severe or life-threatening, it should be considered an emergency. The team of physicians at My Emergency Room 24/7 is fully equipped and prepared to handle urgent pediatric care at all hours of the day, 365 days of the year. They can diagnose and treat:

  • High fever with decreased alertness
  • Severe asthma attacks or allergic reactions

  • Compound bone fractures or severe burns
  • Severe abdominal pain or dehydration
