Commonly Asked Questions
What if my child suffers a head injury?
Our first baby is about to be born. What do we need to know?
“Step 1” Choose a pediatrician – We have open house every other month on Wednesday evenings for expecting parents. You can come meet a couple of the pediatricians and get advice on where to start, when to bring your child to the doctor and what to do after the baby is born.
“Step 2” Tell the hospital who the pediatrician is that will be caring for your baby as soon as he or she is born.
What if my child needs to be hospitalized?
Pacific Coast Pediatrics pediatricians will guide the care of children who are hospitalized. Your child will encounter the familiar faces of our doctors each day he or she is at Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital.
The pediatricians will order tests and monitor the results. They will order all of the child’s care provided or performed by the nursing staff and they will coordinate the care if specialists need to be brought on board to provide more specific and specialized care of the child.
The pediatricians will also guide referral to a more specialized facility if needed and will also guide follow up care for the child.
