Urgent Care Q & A

What is urgent care?

When your child is sick or injured, it’s natural to want them to recover as quickly as possible. For many parents, this means a late-night trip to the emergency room, which more often than not results in a long wait to see a doctor and increases your worry.

If you’re looking to address non-life-threatening medical concerns, urgent care offers the best option for getting prompt, patient-centered treatment for your child. Urgent care treats a long list of illnesses and injuries that, while requiring immediate care, won’t result in severe injury or death.

When should I take my child to urgent care?

Urgent care is appropriate for a broad range of unexpected injuries, infections, and illnesses. Some of these conditions include:

  • Colds and flu
  • Allergies
  • Asthma flare-ups
  • Ear infections
  • Strep throat
  • Insect bites
  • Sports injuries
  • Minor burns and cuts
  • Minor broken bones
  • Vomiting and diarrhea

If your child needs immediate medical attention, most of those needs can be met at Night Watch Pediatric Urgent Care. If your child has suffered a severe injury or has a serious illness like a large open wound or a loss of consciousness, it’s best to take them to a hospital emergency room.

What are the benefits of urgent care?

Night Watch Pediatric Urgent Care is a convenient alternative to the emergency room and an excellent option for all of your after-hours medical needs. Some of the benefits of urgent care include:

  • Shorter wait times

With urgent care, patients not only benefit from the convenience and cost-effectiveness but also the specialist care provided by Night Watch Pediatric Urgent Care physicians, where your child can be on their way to recovery in as little as an hour.

What if I already have a pediatrician?

Although the team at Night Watch Pediatric Urgent Care provides pediatric services, they aren’t meant to replace your child’s primary pediatrician. Instead, pediatric urgent care is meant to be as an extension of your child’s medical support network.

The Night Watch Pediatric Urgent Care team often works closely with your child’s pediatrician after your visit. Your child’s pediatrician will receive a copy of your child’s medical report, discharge instructions, and the results of any X-Rays or labs performed during your urgent care visit.
