What is urgent care and when should you use it?


Urgent care is similar to emergency care but should not be confused with emergency care. Urgent care is a facility that has been set up to deal with medical situations that are not life-threatening but warrant immediate medical care. Urgent care facilities are ideal for patients who have bone fractures (broken bones), suspected infections, asthma-related breathing issues, or dehydration. Other situations in which urgent care will be best suited to your medical needs are fevers without any rashes, vomiting, persistent diarrhea, moderate flu-like symptoms, small cuts that may need sutures, or sprains and strains to joints or muscles. The best rule to abide by when trying to determine if urgent care is going to be appropriate for you is if it is a situation where you need medical attention that day, but it’s not a life-threatening situation. If you believe you are having a heart attack, stroke, or situations such as bleeding while pregnant, these are examples of medical situations in which you should immediately go to an emergency room.

What should I expect during my urgent care visit?


At your urgent care visit, the physician and any nurses who are assisting will go over what your chief complaint is. Chief complaints are the reason you have come to the facility. They will do an exam of your overall health, which may include blood pressure readings, checking your respiratory rates, reviewing your heart rate, and potentially listening to your lungs as well. After they gather this baseline of your health, they will then go into detail regarding the situation that has brought you to the facility, which can involve manual palpitation of the afflicted area, to determine the severity and if there is any pain in the area. If it is a situation such as asthma, after they listen to your lungs they may provide a prescription for medication to manage the situation, same with other injuries that warrant medications. If you have come in due to a minor injury such as an abrasion that needs stitches, this will be done in the office. If you believe you have a fractured bone, they will send you for an x-ray to determine the severity of the fracture and if casting will be necessary for the injury.
 
In regard to sports-related or work-related injuries that have resulted in a suspected sprain or strain, they may do some manual palpitation of the area, along with testing of the range of motion in the area to determine if your suspected injury is correct and the suspected severity. They may also require you to have a CT scan or MRI of the area following this and will request you return after the MRI or CT has been completed so they can get the full picture of the injury that has happened.

What factors should I consider when choosing an urgent care clinic?


When it comes to choosing an urgent care clinic, you should consider not only the closeness of the facility but also the services available at the clinic, as this can also determine if your suspected or confirmed injury is something they will be able to assist you with. At Immediate Care of Oklahoma, our facility is set up to manage injuries as we have an on-site X-ray and lab testing that can assist in determining the severity of injuries and creating the best method of treatment for your needs.
