Should I take my baby to the ER?

Go to the nearest Emergency Room (ER) if your child has:

  • Trouble breathing or bleeding that continues after pressure is applied for 10 minutes.
  • A neck or spine injury or any fever in an infant younger than 2 months old.
  • A broken bone, fainting, severe stomach, or chest pain and animal bites.

Urgent Care - There are some injuries and illnesses that are probably not emergencies but can turn into emergencies if they are not treated within 24 hours. Examples of urgent care needs are:

  • A minor to moderate asthma attack.
  • Earaches, sore throat, muscle sprains/strains.
  • A minor illness with fever if a child is more than 2 months old.
  • A skin rash due to an insect bite.
