When to Take Your Baby to an Urgent Care 

You should consider taking your baby to Urgent Care if they have a life-threatening illness or injury. Some of the symptoms that should prompt you to seek urgent care services include the following:

Trouble Breathing 

It’s hard to determine whether your child has a cold or flu and has trouble breathing. However, several apparent symptoms indicate that your child is struggling to breathe and you need urgent care for babies’ services. These symptoms include:

  • Continuous wheezing
  • Breathing as if they’ve been exercising
  • Persistent wheezing that causes difficulty in talking
 

Minor Injuries

You should also seek help from urgent care if your child has an injury that causes prolonged pain bleeding from a minor wound or cut. If a visible misalignment, excessive swelling, or there is a severe wound in the abdomen or chest, you should seek immediate help from an emergency room.

High Fever Accompanied by Other Symptoms 

People often bring their kids to the hospital due to fever. Most cases can wait for a doctor’s appointment, mainly if you use several home remedies to bring it down. However, you should seek help from a kids’ Urgent Care if the fever goes as high as 100F and is accompanied by symptoms like non-stop vomiting, trouble breathing, and dehydration.

What to Expect in a Pediatric Urgent Care

Soon after you arrive at our Urgent Care, your child will be seen by a nurse who will start asking about the symptoms, check vital signs, and make a quick assessment, a process known as triage. This will help prioritize your child’s medical needs based on the severity of their condition. If the nurse’s assessment does not require referral to an emergency room, a provide at Citra will then treat and diagnose your child.
