Pediatric Care Q & A

What is pediatric care?

Pediatric care is a health service provided by pediatricians — specialists in the medical care of children.

Pediatric care often starts before a child is born and carries on after birth into infancy and early childhood, the pre-teen years, adolescence, and young adulthood. Care of children and teenagers includes:

  • Physical health
  • Psychosocial health
  • Developmental health
  • Mental health

Many pediatricians provide pediatric care that includes routine things like immunizations and wellness checks. Others like Night Watch Pediatric Urgent Care provide urgent and out-of-hours services to parents when they can’t see their child’s own pediatrician.

What situations does pediatric care address?

You can use a pediatric care facility for all your child’s health care needs apart from the most serious medical emergencies, when you need to call 911 or go to an emergency room. At Night Watch Pediatric Urgent Care, the dedicated pediatricians can deal with injuries minor and serious, including sprains, broken bones, and dislocations.

They also treat children who have illnesses and infections like:

  • Asthma flare-ups
  • Colds, coughs, sore throat, and flu
  • Dehydration
  • Ear pain & infections
  • Fever
  • Removal of splinters
  • Insect bites
  • Allergies
  • Minor burns and cuts
  • Skin rash and infections
  • Sports injuries

What type of pediatric care do I need?

You should see your regular pediatrician for all your child’s routine checkups, immunizations, developmental concerns, and monitoring of ongoing health concerns.

If they’re available, you can also consult your child’s pediatrician if you have a more urgent need of medical care. But when they’re not available, or they can’t see your child quickly enough, a service like Night Watch Pediatric Urgent Care fills the gap between your pediatrician and the emergency room.

You can always call Night Watch Pediatric Urgent Care before visiting to discuss any concerns about your child’s health and get advice on the best form of care.
