What is a same-day sick visit?

Same-day sick visits are appointments that address your child’s illness or injury promptly with same-day care. The team at American Pediatrics is dedicated to helping your child stay as healthy as possible, and offer telehealth and after hours care in addition to same-day office visits. 

Some of the health issues that can be assessed and treated during sick visits include:

  • Coughing
  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • Fever 
  • Vomiting and nausea 
  • Diarrhea or constipation 
  • Abrasions or minor laceration
  • Minor burns
  • Minor sports injuries
  • Allergic reaction
  • Mild to moderate asthma attack
  • General fatigue or malaise

Parents and guardians should never hesitate to contact American Pediatrics for help when their child is sick. No one knows your child better than you do, and if you feel something is wrong, you should seek professional help from a trusted medical provider.

What safety measures do you take for a same-day sick visit?

The American Pediatrics team is committed to helping your child on the road to recovery, and the last thing that should happen is exposure to other illnesses or worsening of symptoms. The providers work hard to ensure your child’s sick visit is as safe as possible. 

The practice has a separate waiting area for sick visits, helping maintain separation between patients. They also use the highest standards of hygiene, keeping waiting and treatment rooms clean and safe. 

Disposable gloves, medical equipment, and exam bed covers further reduce the risk of spreading germs between patients. 

What if my child is afraid to see the doctor at a sick visit?

It’s important to establish pediatric care early on to ensure your child can develop a better bond with their pediatrician and feel comfortable coming in for care when they’re injured or sick.  

In addition, there are many different books that can help them know what to expect when coming in for a doctor’s appointment. You can find a book written for your child’s age and make sure to read it together. 

Language also plays another important role in how kids view their experience at the doctor’s. It can make a world of a difference when parents use positive language to talk about the visit, such as “getting to go the doctor” rather than “having to go to the doctor.” 

If your child is not feeling well, call American Pediatrics or book an appointment online today.
