Health and Safety
The providers at Town Pediatrics always seek to keep you current on the latest medical information and innovations to help keep your child safe both at home and at school. Concussions and their management is an area of concern in sports.
Many concussions do not require urgent evaluation by either an urgent care or ER and can be observed overnight at home. If you think your child may have sustained a concussion, please contact the triage nurse or our after hours line to determine the next appropriate step in management and treatment for your child.
The providers at Town Pediatrics recommend that all parents of athletes review the document "Student Athlete Concussion Guidelines" by clicking on the football image to be taken to the "Concussion Management" section of the lcps.org website.
