Medical Monday (a little late due to the holiday)
I hope your Labor Day holiday was a safe and happy one, here is a great infographic I ran across that simply shows when you should pick the ER vs. going to an Urgent Care if you can't get into your own primary care physician or your child's peds doctor for certain health ailments when you do need medical help. Always remember for any life threatening conditions please call 911 and let trained EMS/fire/rescue personnel help you make those decisions, don't try and drive yourself or your loved ones to the ER by yourself.
