How urgent is a dr appt... Is decided by parents. Emergency cases in children require hospital admission.

When you call a doctor for appointment,  please be sure the child is not having any danger to life. If u feel child is serious or very weak or u arr worried of danger to life,  please do not wait at home and take the child to hospital immediately for admission and supervised therapy. Taking a risk to wait for an appointment can at times worsen the disease,  more so when the wait is more.
When a patient is at home How urgent is a dr appt... Is decided by parents. Emergency cases in children require hospital admission.
THIS IS ONLY BECAUSE EVERY PARENT IS NOT A DOCTOR AND PARENTS ASSESSMENT OF SEVERITY OF DISEASE CAN'T BE SAME AS DOCTORS AND ITS NOT WISE TO WAIT AT HOME WHEN IN DOUBT.


When a doctor says no immediate danger to life means child can be saved with medical measures if acted in time. It doesnt always mean that child can be managed at home.
