After-Hours Care

If you feel your child has a severe or emergency situation, call 911 or proceed to the nearest emergency room.

For less urgent situations, advice personnel are available by phone 24 hours a day. During Altos Pediatrics office hours, our advice nurses are available to answer your questions in consultation with our pediatricians, at no charge to you. If you feel your child has an urgent situation that requires input from a health care provider outside of regular hours, call our telephone number.

Our answering service will fax a message to Night Nurse Pediatric Triage Services, and a pediatric advice nurse can give you advice about your child's illness, injury, or medications. Their advice is based on protocols, which we have approved. At all times, a pediatrician from our call group is available to provide back up. The following morning, a note documenting each call and the advice given is reviewed by our advice nurse as well as a pediatrician and then is placed in your child's medical record. There will be a charge of $20 for each phone call to the Night Nurse service.

If you and the After Hours nurses determine your child needs to be seen, they can assist in scheduling an appointment at one of the local after hours clinics.

The American of Pediatrics has created several Fact Sheets on a variety of After Hours Issues
