‘We treat kids like kids’.
Every parent knows that emergencies and kids go together. Accident prone and a little naive, kids are not aware of the consequences of jumping on the bed, attempting wheelies and running into each other. They are also really good at having accidents when the pediatrician’s office is not open. All three of my kids have needed urgent care and all three have needed it outside of normal business hours. That is why NightLight Pediatric Urgent Care Center is needed. Add them to your family contact list now. There are multiple locations in the Houston area and plans to expand to Katy and outside of Houston soon!
I was lucky enough to get a few hours with Brittany Bluford at the NightLight Pediatric Urgent Care Center a few weeks back and the information I learned is invaluable to any parent.
This 7 room facility in Cypress, TX has been open for over 10 years. With colorful, themed rooms, an open waiting room with an area for kids and long time staffers that really love their jobs, they take into consideration every need for every nervous parent and every scared child.
The care starts online before you even leave for the urgent care office. If your child has a high fever at 10 o’clock at night or can’t seem to shake that stomach virus on a Sunday afternoon, go ahead and book your visit online so that the staff knows you are coming.
‘We are an extension of the Pediatrician’s Office, not a replacement.’
When you walk into the waiting room, the care continues. NightLight Pediatric Urgent Care Centers have two sets of televisions. One runs a kid’s movie and the other keeps the time for the patients. You can look at the screen and know where you are in the Que. This is awesome as wait times are often variable and frustrating for parents. Especially if their child is suffering.
Accepting all major insurance, NightLight Pediatric Urgent Care tries to make every aspect of caring for your child easier. In fact, if you have a baby under 2 months, you are automatically a priority. Plus they will see you up to age 21!
When your child is called you are escorted into the vital’s room. This is the first stop as you and your child receive top notch care. Then you will be escorted to one of the 7 themed rooms. From a farm room to a dinosaur room to under the sea, each room’s ambiance is specifically chosen with the purpose of making the doctor less scary. There are even glow in the dark stars in case the lights have to go out.
Once your child is treated you have the ability to leave feedback for NightLight Pediatric Urgent Care to use to improve and you can even leave a prayer request. The owners, who are two female physicians, take the requests and pray for your needs.
The tight knit staff is there for you for stitches, broken bones, toe nail removals, tummy bugs and any other urgent care issues your child may have 364 days a year. One day a year they close to the whole staff and their families can do something fun together.
We moms know that accidents happen. Often at the most inconvenient times. Knowing that NightLight Pediatric Urgent Care is there to help when they do is comforting. Knowing that this company truly cares about the relationships between patients, parents and the family Pediatrician is a bonus!
