Emergency Pediatric Care in Houston

24/7 Medical Treatment for Children with No Wait

At Sacred Heart ER, our emergency pediatricians specialize in treating young people who experience sudden injuries or illnesses in our pediatric-specific suites. Parents typically are unprepared when their children have an ailment that lands their child in the ER, but we can help get your child well as quickly as possible. Our doctors diagnose and treat all types of conditions in infants, children, and adolescents, even patients who are too young to communicate what’s wrong or what hurts. Some patients may even fear being in an emergency department or are uncooperative, which is understandable, and our team is compassionate and here to help soothe your child’s nerves and help them on the path to healing.

Should I Take My Child to the Emergency Room?

If you’re questioning whether your child should go to the emergency room, the answer is most likely “yes.” Symptoms of a serious medical problem include: 

  • Sudden, unusual behavioral changes
  • Complaints of severe pain
  • Allergic reactions
  • Loss of alertness/consciousness
  • Rhythmic jerking
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Turning yellow or blue
  • High fever
  • Head trauma
  • Ingesting something toxic
  • Chronic illness complications 
  • Open wounds or lacerations
  • Foreign objects needing to be removed
  • Animal bites or insect stings
  • Severe injury accidents
  • Electric shocks
  • Choking 

Preparing for the ER 

While nobody can be 100% prepared for an emergency, it’s a good idea to have a handy list of your child’s medication and medical history in case one happens to occur. Remember to bring your health insurance card and emergency contact information. Be your child’s advocate and speak up when you have any questions or concerns, especially regarding ER aftercare. Once you go home from the ER, make sure to call your child’s regular pediatrician for follow-up care.

At Sacred Heart ER, you can count on 24/7 pediatric emergency room care with no wait. Count on us to help your child with skillful care.
