We subscribe to a pediatric nurse triage service for management of after hours concerns and questions. When you call the Nurse Triage answering service, a non-medical clerk will take down your phone number and a short description of your child’s problem. That information is faxed to the Nurse Triage office at Children’s Hospital. A member of the triage staff will return your call as quickly as possible. These nurses work from the same set of standardized triage protocols used by our own staff members. One doctor from our practice is always on call, and the triage nurses are able to reach that doctor for difficult or emergency problems almost immediately.

Call 911 if:

  • Your child is not breathing or is becoming cyanotic (blue) in color.
  • Your child is having a seizure
  • Your child is bleeding severely and you can’t slow it with application of firm pressure, or if blood is spurting in a rhythmic manner as from an artery
  • Your child is unconscious for more than 30 seconds
  • Your child has an injury where bone is sticking out of the skin or the child is in so much pain that you can’t move him
  • Your child is working much harder than usual to breathe
  • If your child looks so very seriously ill that you are afraid to drive him/her to the hospital
