Accidents and injuries are part of your child’s growing up. During these unexpected medical emergencies, you may not always be sure when you should take your child to the emergency room.
Pediatric ER services at Dignity Health North State aim to accurately diagnose and treat acute injuries in children and teenagers. Use InQuicker to schedule an estimated arrival time, or come straight to one of our children’s emergency rooms in Northern California.
Depending on your child’s symptoms, immediate medical care might be the best type of treatment.
If your child or a child you’re caring for shows the following signs and symptoms, call 911 for immediate medical attention:
In some cases, your family doctor can properly care for your child’s symptoms, including a high fever. If your child has a fever along with a severe headache or stiff neck, visit the nearest emergency room, as these are symptoms of meningitis.
Other reasons to bring your child to the ER are:
Some symptoms are very obvious of medical trauma. Other times, you may not be sure if your child requires immediate medical care. If you’re not sure, bring your child to an emergency department at Dignity Health North State for an expert’s evaluation.
