When to Seek Medical Care for Nursemaid Elbow
Call your doctor immediately after the injury. If your doctor feels comfortable seeing you in the office and can get you in right away, putting the bones back in place (this is called reduction) can be performed in the office very quickly.
If you are unable to get an appointment or cannot be seen in the doctor's office for any other reason, go to the hospital's emergency department for evaluation and corrective actions.
