Pediatric Care Q & A

River Oaks Emergency Room

What is pediatric care?

Pediatric care is a branch of medicine that focuses on the health and well-being of infants, children, and adolescents, typically from birth through age 18. Pediatric care seeks to provide diagnoses and treatments for all types of ailments your child might face, as well as offering preventive health services.

What are some common pediatric emergencies?

Since children tend to lead very active lives and are usually surrounded by other children, they are prone to getting injured or sick. Some of the most common pediatric emergencies include:

  • Cold and flu
  • Infections
  • Asthma attacks
  • Abdominal pain
  • Ear infections
  • Allergies
  • Lacerations
  • Orthopedic injuries
  • Conjunctivitis (pink eye)

River Oaks Emergency Room is equipped to handle all of these pediatric emergencies and more.

When it's the middle of the night and your baby is feverish, or your teenager gets hurt, the pediatrician's office and urgent care are closed. Having a free-standing ER in the Houston area to care for your child -- without the wait time, chaos, and higher cost of a hospital emergency department -- can bring peace of mind.

The medical professionals at the River Oaks emergency center provide pediatric care that encompasses a range of conditions. They’re able to diagnose and treat:

  • Infections
  • Injuries, including bone breaks and sprains
  • Genetic and congenital conditions
  • Cancers
  • Organ diseases and dysfunctions

River Oaks Emergency Room offers designated, child-friendly examination rooms designed to ensure that children feel safe and comfortable during their visit. The facility is also stocked with kid-friendly toys and books to entertain your child during the procedures.

  • Abdominal pain
  • Fever
  • Chills and shaking
  • A dry, hacking cough
  • A sore throat
