When does your child need the ER?

separator Sometimes there’s no doubt you need to take your child to the emergency department:
  • When a bone is obviously broken or there’s swelling at the injury site
  • When a cut won’t stop bleeding or is too deep to heal on its own
  • When an injury causes limping or pain that won’t go away
  • When a head injury causes loss of consciousness, vomiting or change in behavior

Whenever you feel as if there’s no doubt about it, go to the emergency room. On the other hand, if you really aren’t sure, try calling your doctor first. You may be able to take care of your child yourself (with advice from your doctor) or make an appointment to see the doctor, avoiding the emergency room altogether.
