A podcast for patients and families on deciding between the ED and Urgent Care – PEMBlog

I recorded this episode of the Cincinnati Children’s podcast Young & Healthy with Hannah Carron, one of the Pediatric Emergency Medicine at our institution. It provides succinct recommendations on when to call 911, seek care in the Emergency Department or Urgent Care, when to ask the advice of your primary care provider, and even when virtual urgent care visits are appropriate. Hannah did a tremendous job highlighting some of the most important take home points for patients and families!
