Sick Child Care Q & A

Pediatrician DenverWhat is a pediatric sick visit?

When your child is ill, you need care quickly. Since illness is not planned, visits are typically arranged at the last minute. When available, Integrative Pediatric Health Care can schedule a sick visit for a child on the same day to get them the care they need as soon as possible. Concerns which would fall under the sick visit category include:

  • Rash
  • Earache
  • Bad cough
  • Sore throat
  • Urinary tract infection
  • Cold and flu symptoms
  • Vomiting/diarrhea
  • Fever
  • Pink eye
  • Minor burns, cuts, and other injuries

During a sick visit, minor but urgent medical issues can be addressed. For more severe concerns which would relate to chronic illness or preventative medicine, contact the office to arrange a routine exam ahead of time. For medical emergencies including life threatening or limb loss concerns call 911 or go to the ER immediately.

What should I do when I call to arrange a sick visit for my child?

When a parent calls the office to arrange a pediatric sick visit, the nurse will work to get you attention as soon as possible. The office can triage as needed to make sure you're getting the level of care you need. Parents should also describe the symptoms the child is experiencing in detail. This will assist the nurse to guide the parent to the appropriate location. The nurse can recommend that the parent takes the child to urgent care, arrange a same-day appointment, or can suggest that the parent schedule a visit for the child for a time later in the week.

What do I do if it is after-hours or the weekend?

The providers at the office are experienced with triage and can help with many concerns over the phone, including decisions regarding Urgent Care versus ER visits. If your child is experiencing an emergency, call 911. IPHC does provide same-day visits to help meet the needs of parents when caring for minor illness, injuries, and several other concerns.
