Opher Nadler, M.D., Medical Director of the Children’s Emergency Department at Randall Children’s Hospital at Legacy Emanuel is featured in July’s Portland Family Magazine writing about Randall Children’s Urgent Care.

Randall Children's Urgent Care is at 1960 N.W. 167th Place in Beaverton and treats patients up to age 18 from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and noon to 8 p.m. on weekends.

The most common reasons why you may take your child to the Urgent Care are: cough, sore throat and fever; cuts and bruises; and vomiting and diarrhea. However, the Urgent Care treat kids with most illnesses and injuries that are not medical emergencies, including:

• Allergies
• Asthma attacks
• Broken bones (bone not sticking out)
• Colds, coughs and sore throats
• Cuts and bruises
• Earaches
• Eye problems
• Fevers in infants (older than three months of age)
• Foreign object removal
• Head injury without passing out
• Incision and drainage
• Rashes
• Stitches
• Stomach aches
• Strains and sprains
• Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs)
• Vomiting, diarrhea and dehydration
• X-ray

The clinic accepts walk-in and scheduled visits, via phone, for children who need immediate attention but do not have life-threatening illnesses and injuries.
