After Hours Care

We hope that these guidelines can help you better understand where to seek care for your child. 

  • If you think your child has a life-threatening condition, always call 9-1-1.

 

  • For your convenience, Bubbles Pediatrics, LLC always has a PEDIATRICIAN ON-CALL after hours for emergency concerns through our answering service.   We will help you determine the best setting in which to be evaluated for urgent situations.

 

  • Call Poison Control at 1-800-222-1222 if your child:
    • ate or drank something he/she shouldn't
    • ate or drank a known poison

 

  • Call our main number at 847-882-4300 and select option 2 if you see any of the following:
    • Abnormal bleeding that won't stop
    • Unusually high fever, or any temperature over 100.4 in an infant less than 8 weeks of age.
    • Persistent vomiting or persistent diarrhea
    • Violent Coughing
    • Odd Rashes 
    • Lethargic Children (child is so tired or weak, it is difficult to wake them)
    • Asthma Attack
    • Burns (burn is size of child's palm)
    • Cuts (gaping cuts - especially on the face and in younger children, or the bleeding won't stop)
    • Severe Chest Pain

The emergency line is not for minor illnesses or routine calls.

  • If your child has a minor illness or if you are looking to schedule an appointment, please wait to call during our regular business hours or make a request for an appointment online through our website.  Our staff will return your call in the morning. This ensures that the phone line is kept open for our emergency patients.
