What About an Emergency?

Poison Control Hotline: 1-800-222-1222
Emergency Hotline: 911

If it is not an emergency, you should not go to the emergency room. Even when Nuestros Ninos is closed. If you do, you may have to wait several hours to be treated. This is because people with life-threatening conditions will be treated first. 

These are some symptoms which require immediate attention. Call 911 or go to nearest hospital emergency room, 


  • Difficulty breathing

  • Chest pain

  • Choking

  • Seizures, fainting or unconciousness

  • Broken Bones

  • Bleeding that will not stop

  • Unable to move or speak

  • Drug overdose or poisoning

  • Wanting to hurt yourself or someone else.

Attention: When you call 911 for a life-threatening emergency, speak slowly and clearly. Give your name, address and telephone number. Tell them who needs care and where they are. Describe the problem. Do not hang up until the 911 operator instructs you to.

If the patient is not experiencing a life-threatening situation, you may call Nuestros Ninos Our Kids Pediatrics for assitance. Our medical staff is here to help you and may save you a long wait in an ER/Urgent care facility.
