For life-threatening emergencies in which your child may require resuscitation (e.g. your child is not breathing, is choking severely, is unconscious, is having a seizure, etc.) call 911 immediately.
The Cheyenne Children’s Clinic After-Hours Telephone Care Program gives you and your family immediate access to urgent health care and advice when the clinic is closed.
The After Hours Telephone Care Program is intended for urgent problems regarding illnesses or injuries.
When your child is sick outside of office hours, call our office at (307) 635-7961. The clinic’s answering service will record your name, telephone number, and message, and then notify the system’s after-hours staff. An experienced pediatric nurse from Children’s Hospital Colorado will call you back to assess the situation and make a recommendation for what to do next, based on the same triage protocols the nurses at Cheyenne Children’s Clinic use.
Depending on the information you provide the after-hours nurse, you will either be given home care guidance, be referred to the Emergency Room, or your call may be forwarded to the on-call physician from the clinic, who will then return your call. Please have paper and pen available to write down any instructions you receive.
