  • Kids fall down, bump into things, and pick up germs everywhere they go. Most of the time they turn out just fine, but as a parent, it's tough to know when it's time to head to the ER and when home care is enough. Trust your gut if something feels really wrong with your child. In case of emergency, do the best you can to keep your child relaxed and comfortable, and whenever possible, go to a children's emergency department with equipment sized for kids and doctors trained in pediatric medicine. In emergency rooms of all kinds, these are some of the most common reasons parents bring in their children for immediate care.
