Q.care :: Pediatric Care When You Need it Most

There are a lot of things that are hard about being a parent, but one of the most difficult aspects of having 3 little ones is getting everyone out of the house to tackle the day. Whether it’s groceries, clothes shopping, or going to the doctor, it’s all just… hard. Our family already uses curbside pickup for clothes shopping and grocery delivery so I was SUPER excited to learn that Q.care was launching in Austin and I could now add taking care of my kiddos health as a new service at my fingertips!

If you aren’t familiar, Q.care is on-demand pediatric urgent care service with a licensed nurse practitioner in your home when your pediatrician’s office is closed. Simply download the Q.care app, make a request, and a highly trained Pediatric Specialist will contact you within minutes. You can add in your credit card information, see how far away a care provider is on a map, and see what the cost is going to be. If you have any questions, you can use their FREE Nurse Triage service to help guide you to the proper level of care. It’s literally that easy!

When my 6 year old son took a tumble at school and was complaining of a severe headache I knew we needed to make sure everything was okay, but the thought of going with a 6 year old, 3 year old, and a 4 month old in tow sounded horrible. Q.care absolutely saved my sanity and was undeniably one of the easiest experiences I’ve ever had! I didn’t even leave my couch.

Our nurse practitioner was Linda and she was incredibly knowledgable, fantastic with my son, and had all sorts of fun things in her medical bag to keep my tired kiddo engaged. From the scale to weigh him {and me :)}, to the stethoscope, and even checking his reflexes, Linda was fully prepared to make sure my son hadn’t suffered any serious head trauma due to his pretty scary fall on the playground. I can’t stress enough how amazing it was to not have to get everyone out to make sure he was okay. And if he had been sick or needed medication, your nurse can even go pick up the prescription for you. WIN for sure! Plus Q.care makes sure to send all records over to your regular pediatrician and they even continue to check up on your little one. It was just awesome.

Q.care is open on the weekends 8am – 8 pm and will expand to weekdays in the near future! The cost for a house call is your urgent care co-pay + convenience fee ($25), but currently the convenience fee is being waived until Oct 1st, 2016. Q.care treats most common childhood concerns, including in-home strep and flu tests, asthma, allergies, pink eye, ear infections, rashes, and more and their Pediatric Nurse Practitioners have on average 5+ years of pediatric nursing experience. Nurse Practitioners can perform most of the functions of a Pediatrician, including writing prescriptions.
