Symptom Checker

Introduction

What should you do when your child falls and gets a bump on the head? Do you need to go to the emergency department now? Is the croupy cough that just started serious? These are questions that all of us have. And frequently they arise in the evenings and weekend when your doctor's office is closed.

University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital Symptom Checker is designed especially for these times. The topics help you make appropriate decisions on what level of medical care (if any) is needed and how to provide symptom relief for minor illnesses and injuries at home.
