Hi
Thanks for the query

In head injury the patient is admitted to hospital for observation for atleast 48 hours and observed for next 48 in home. The patient is observed for symptoms like detoriation in level of consciousness, persistent vomiting, fits or bleed especially from nasal cavity.

Your child as has vomitted three times in just eight hour which definitly needs medical attention so it is recommended to take him to hospital as early as possible

If you still have some query, feel free to ask.

Thanks
Regards
