After-Hours Emergency Q & A

Carnegie Hill Pediatrics

What is after-hours emergency care?

Since emergencies can happen at any hour, Carnegie Hill Pediatrics offers after-hours emergency care. Whether it’s in the middle of the night, on a Saturday afternoon, or during Thanksgiving dinner, the office provides an emergency phone number where you can reach medical personnel whenever you need them.

With a Carnegie Hill pediatrician on call every weekend, you can always reach a doctor who knows your child and his or her condition. The doctor can address your issue over the phone, have you come in for an emergency care visit, or recommend that you take your child to the hospital (in the case of exceptional emergencies).

When should you call after-hours emergency care?

If your child is experiencing an urgent medical condition that can’t wait until regular office hours, call the after-hours emergency care line right away. You can talk to a medical professional who will address your situation and determine what the best course of action is.

Anytime you feel that your child’s condition is urgent, call your pediatrician's emergency number. Examples of appropriate emergencies include:

  • A high fever that doesn’t respond to medication
  • A fall that causes severe swelling
  • A headache accompanied by vomiting or fever
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Extreme pain in the abdomen, particularly on the right side
