How to Decide When to Go to the Emergency Room

20 Sep

We have all been there as parents. It’s a weekend night and your child is sick. They are not feeling well, are crying, and you are faced with the dilemma: do I go to the Emergency Room, or do I wait to go to the doctor?

I know I faced this dilemma when my daughter was about 18 months old. She had vomited twice and was not holding down even water. In my case, we chose to go and it was the right decision, but sometimes it is a difficult choice.

Pamela Kramer from Parents Magazine has written a guide to help parents make that decision in her article 20 Things to Know Before Taking Your Child to the ER.
