Fractures, or broken bones, are the fourth most common injury among children under age six. At Little Spurs Pediatric Urgent Care, we are able to evaluate broken bones or sprains. If part of the injury is open and bleeding, or if bone is protruding through the skin, place firm pressure on the wound; then cover it with clean (preferably sterile) gauze. We recommend taking your child to the emergency room if they have this kind of fracture.
