How are urgent care and emergency care different?

Urgent care addresses mild and moderate illnesses and injuries, whereas the emergency room is equipped to handle life-threatening situations, such as strokes, heart attacks, and traumatic injuries.

If you can, it’s much better to go to urgent care instead of the emergency room, in which you may wait 3-4 hours or longer to see a doctor and can leave patients with high costs after their visit.

In contrast, urgent care is affordable, and you usually see a provider within 15 minutes. Instead of waiting in an overcrowded, noisy, and uncomfortable emergency room, when you come to All Day Medical Care Clinic for urgent care, you enjoy your wait in a quiet, clean, and spacious waiting room.

When should I select the emergency room?

While urgent care is a time and money-saving option for many situations, sometimes, you really do need to go to the emergency room. If you or a loved one is experiencing any of the following symptoms, rush them to the emergency room:

  • Severe chest pain, especially if it radiates to the jaw or arm
  • Paralysis
  • Weakness on one side of the body
  • Sudden severe headaches
  • Sudden loss of sight
  • Sudden difficulty understanding speech or speaking
  • Intestinal bleeding
  • Uncontrolled vomiting
  • Rash accompanied by high fever
  • Severe burns
  • Bleeding while on blood thinners

Also, if you’ve just been in a car accident where the airbag deployed, you should seek emergency care.

If your child under four months of age develops a fever, take them directly to the emergency room.

Before you hop in the car and head to the emergency room, ask yourself if you need emergency care or urgent care. Save time, money, and a headache by visiting All Day Medical Care Clinic for urgent care.
