Emergencies

 

In the event of a non life-threatening emergency, please contact the office (after hours you will be connected to our answering service).  We have nurses covering patient calls 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  If you feel your child has an urgent (non life-threatening) issue and you cannot wait for a call back during regular office hours, please notify the receptionist to be connected directly to a nurse or doctor.


For life-threatening emergencies, call 911 and go immediately to the nearest hospital emergency room.  They will contact us.  Emergency assistance is available from:

Bossier City Fire Dept..............................................911

Bossier City Police Dept...........................................911

Shreveport Fire Dept...............................................911

Shreveport Police Dept............................................911

Poison Control Center..............................................1-800-222-1222

IF YOU COME TO THE OFFICE WITH YOUR CHILD IN A LIFE-THREATENING OR URGENT STATE - YOU MUST NOTIFY THE RECEPTIONISTS.  RECEPTIONISTS ARE NOT MEDICAL PROVIDERS AND CANNOT ACCESS THE SEVERITY OF YOUR CHILD'S ILLNESS.  THEY CAN GET A NURSE OR DOCTOR TO COME ACCESS YOUR CHILD AND DETERMINE IF THEY NEED TO BE BROUGHT BACK IMMEDIATELY.  WE ASK FOR PATIENCE AND UNDERSTANDING WHEN CHILDREN WITH URGENT MEDICAL NEEDS GET SEEN BEFORE CHILDREN WITH EARLIER APPOINTMENTS AND ARRIVAL TIMES.
