Acute Care

Life happens and that means accidents occur. There may be situations that aren’t life-threatening, but they do need immediate care. This type of immediate care is called acute care and it’s important to understand when you need to visit your urgent care facility for acute care and what it consists of. Acute care typically consists of injuries or sicknesses that aren’t severe emergencies but need to be treated immediately.

All About Acute Care

When you’re in need of acute care, there are several types of injuries or illnesses that you may be dealing with. It’s important to know when you need this care and what situations acute care can treat. Typically, acute care consists of non-emergency situations that need treatment as soon as possible. This could include issues like:

  • Allergies
  • Flu
  • Fever
  • Sinus infection

If you aren’t feeling well, your doctor can provide acute care and give you the treatment that you need to recover. Acute care can also be used when you’ve been involved in an injury or accident. This could include needing stitches or dealing with a broken bone. These need to be done as soon as possible so that you can avoid infection and heal quickly.

If you have an accident in the workplace, you need to receive acute care as soon as possible. This helps with liability and provides you with the care that you need so that you can return to work quickly. It’s important that you don’t hesitate to get yourself the care that you need when you’re dealing with an injury or an illness.
