What To Do When Your Child Gets Hurt

This post has been sponsored by CareNow. All opinions are 100% our own!

Injuries. Let’s talk about ’em. Fingers slammed in the car door. An ugly bug bite on your toddler’s perfect skin. Does that cut on the bottom of your foot need stitches?

As far as I’m concerned, this it what urgent care was invented for. CareNow treats all of these accidental injuries and ailments and more. Let me run down a few of the other common kid-related issues you can find treatment for at CareNow:

  • Fractures, sprains, and strains
  • Poison ivy and other skin conditions
  • Burns
  • Foreign object removal (I have multiple bean-up-the-nose anecdotes, y’all.)
  • Ear infections, sore throat, pink eye, and all that other fun stuff
  • See a full list of CareNow services here.
Did you know all CareNow clinics are equipped with x-ray machines?

It’s so nice to have an option for x-rays besides the ER. Especially these days.

Speaking of “these days,” let’s talk health and safety measures. CareNow clinics are a safe place to seek care. Now, as ever, they have protocols in place for the safety and well-being of all patients:

We know urgent care to be a more affordable and faster option than the ER for non-life-threatening conditions. And we know urgent care to be a great option for weekends or after-hours when your pediatrician’s office is closed. CareNow provides top-notch care and customer service, with over 40 locations in the metroplex. Find the clinic nearest you, so you’ll be ready when it’s go time!

Katie grew up in Dallas, went to SMU, and spent 10 post-college years in Austin, where she and her husband Mick welcomed Gemma in 2011 and Ryker in 2013. They all moved to central Fort Worth almost 4 years ago and have found it to be quite fun and a great place for kids. Katie is horrible at social media but will admit to a preference for her Twitter timeline these days. Favorite uses for her phone: reading library books and listening to comedy podcasts. Least favorite uses: making and receiving calls. She's forever down to watch any show that's British, supernatural, or on The CW. If you can quote Death Becomes Her, Big Business, or the 1987 Shelley Long flop Hello Again, please get in touch because you are most certainly kindred spirits.
