The Children's Hospital
My stepson was involved in an accident while playing baseball. During the game he was hit in the head with a baseball. At the time we did not think it was serious due to him having his helmet on. He went back out on the field when he felt better and played. Shortly later he stopped and started crying. We figured he may have a headache and took him home to give him some Tylenol. Before we could give him anything he started throwing up. We took him to the E.R. immediately and he was transferred to the Children’s Hospital PICU. He had a concussion and a small bleed on his brain. Thankfully it stopped and he was sent home. During our stay he was treated like a celebrity. He was so happy and even asked if we could move there. That in it self says a lot about this hospital. He received excellent care and attention from every staff member. I have a new profound respect for this hospital. Thanks to everyone involved!!!

My daughter had to stay at the Children's Hospital twice. Very nice and friendly staff. The art and colors added a creative touch that my daughter found fascinating. We were given one of the beautiful handmade blankets that was donated to the hospital. There was a breakroom with a coffee maker and snack machines, which came in handy. All of our needs were met. All around great place.
Tips & Advices
Under most health insurance plans, urgent care visits will require a copay that is usually less expensive than emergency room visits, but more expensive than standard doctor visits - around $120 on average. Urgent care staff do not have much information regarding individual coverage, so be prepared and check with your insurance provider to understand costs.
It is common for urgent care physicians to recommend follow-up treatment after an initial visit. Most commonly, patients will be asked to return to the clinic or their primary care doctor if symptoms get worse or do not improve in a certain amount of time. Patients might be referred to a specialist for treatment of more complex conditions. Or patients may simply be given a few basic tips for recovering at home. In any case, patients should follow the doctor’s advice regarding next treatment steps.
If needed, urgent care doctors can prescribe medication to treat conditions. This may include antibiotics for an infection or pain medication for a broken bone. Be sure to follow the doctor’s instructions for taking these medicines.
Be sure to explain your symptoms to physicians in as much detail as possible. Note when or where the symptoms first appeared if possible. Inform urgent care staff of any medical conditions you may have, all allergies, and all medications you are currently taking. Also be sure to bring proper forms of identification, and any health insurance cards/information to help process your visit.
You should be able to find a 24-hour urgent care clinic by searching online resources such as yellowpages.com. Be sure the location is included in your health plan network before visiting.
