Children can be difficult to care for, especially when they’re getting themselves into trouble. It can seem like accidents happen all the time. If a serious accident were to occur, then you know what to do: dial 911 and get your child to a hospital ER. If a minor accident occurs or if your child gets a minor illness, then you have options. If your child’s ailment is non-life-threatening, then you can take him or her to the emergency room (ER). The problem, though, is that you’ll likely experience long wait times, and a trip to the ER can be expensive too. This is why Broadway Family Clinic might be the better option!
What is a pediatric walk-in clinic?
This type of care is all about treating children of just about any age, from toddlers to teenagers, and treating them immediately. You can bring your child right into Broadway Family Clinic without making an appointment. When you come in with your child, the two of you will be addressed immediately.
Pediatric immediate care centers are able to provide diagnosis and treatment for non-life-threatening conditions such as earache, dehydration, asthma, croup, rash, minor fractures, minor cuts, and more.
Should I take my child to a pediatric walk-in clinic?
Dr. Kashif Siddiqui and Dr. Sumera Muzaffar know how to be patient with children and treat them carefully. Our clinic offers many on-site services including vaccinations, on-site lab testing, and more. We can even offer sports or school physicals! Please note that we treat children ages 2 months and up only.
A pediatric walk-in clinic is a great idea when a trip to the ER just isn’t necessary. There are plenty of good reasons to take your child to Broadway Family Clinic!
When should a child go to a pediatric walk-in clinic for a fever?
This is an excellent question. It can depend on the child’s age or the severity of the fever.
If your child is older than 2 months of age and has a temperature below 102°F (38.9°C), then you can take your child to a pediatric walk-in clinic. However, if your child is 2 months of age or younger and has a rectal temperature of 100.4°F (38°C) or higher, then call 911 and get your child to the emergency room immediately. Even a mild fever in an infant can be a sign of serious infection, so dial 911 if you believe this is the case with your infant.
Older children might need emergency care instead of urgent care if he or she:
- has a temperature above 102°F (38.9°C)
- is no longer interested in playing at all
- is not eating or drinking well
- is unable to stay alert and smile at you
- has abnormal skin color
- does not look well even after his or her temperature comes down
It’s important to use your discretion in many cases. If you’re unsure about your child’s condition and whether the fever could be severe, then call 911 and go to the emergency room.
