When should you go to urgent care clinics? Who should go to urgent care?
There’s a time to go to your primary care doctor, and there’s another time to go to the ER (emergency room). But when is the time to go to urgent care? Your doctor is for general healthcare, like checkups and family health advice, and the ER is for emergency healthcare, like major traumas or life-threatening illnesses. Urgent care clinics are for urgent care, which is healthcare for minor but urgent health situations like minor cuts or last-minute physical exams to join a new sports team. Please just remember that urgent care is for minor, non-life-threatening health issues only.
You can go to urgent care clinics for any health-related issue that’s minor but that you feel is also urgent. Minor illnesses, minor injuries, sports or school physicals, missed annual physicals, immunizations, and more can be done at urgent care. No appointment is necessary, so you can just walk right in for same-day service and immediate care. You can also bring in a family member for urgent care. Your child, an elderly parent—anyone of any age can be treated at urgent care clinics. Employees can go to urgent care too if they suffer an injury on a worksite.
Do you go to urgent care for stitches? Can urgent care treat fractures?
Urgent care is the best place to go if you or a loved one has a minor cut that needs stitches. A minor cut is one that is bleeding controllably, and handling this kind of minor injury is no problem for urgent care. They can provide stitches right on the spot, as well as wound repair, treatment for minor animal bites, treatment for simple sports injuries, and stabilization of minor fractures.
Urgent care can treat minor fractures, but it’s important to remember that some fractures can be life-threatening. For instance, a fracture in which the bone is puncturing the skin is life-threatening. Simple fractures, though, and other simple injuries can be handled by an urgent care clinic like Eastside Urgent Care. With us, no appointment is necessary and we’re available 7 days a week, so you can come see us just about whenever you need minor injury care near you. Family members of any age are welcome too, but children must be accompanied by an adult.
