Hurricane Florence and RCAM

Written by Dr. Todd Harris

September 10, 2018 – Raleigh Children & Adolescents Medicine will be following the advice of our Governor and other emergency agencies as North Carolina prepares for Hurricane Florence.

As with winter storms, we will update here if we have to close or otherwise alter normal office operations at one or both of our offices.

Some potential scenarios:

  1. If we have to close our BRIER CREEK office, we may reschedule patients or we may try to route them to our DURALEIGH office
  2. If we have to close our DURALEIGH office, we may reschedule patients or we may try to route them to our BRIER CREEK office
  3. If we have to close BOTH OFFICES, we will do our best to manage urgent concerns by phone and then recommending those who need it to the local emergency departments.

A note about the phones: If there is a problem with our main phone line and you have an urgent concern about a sick child, you can call our backup answering service number at 919-831-5526.

Please keep in mind that if that situation occurs, the number of people answering the phone will be limited, so only call with urgent concerns. Save routine calls for when things settle down.
