Should I go to the emergency room or an urgent care clinic?

Unfortunately, medical problems don't always happen during office hours and your primary care provider may not always be available. At some time, you may need the services of either the emergency room or an urgent care clinic. Urgent care is for illnesses or injuries that can't wait until the next business day but do not require the resources of an emergency room.

When to go to the Emergency Room:
If your illness or injury is severe or life-threatening, ALWAYS GO TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM. The Emergency Room is open 24 hours, seven days a week and provides specialized care and a wide range of services to treat emergencies.

Visit the ER if you experience any of the following situations:

  • Chest pain
  • Severe shortness of breath
  • Signs of a heart attack (chest discomfort, discomfort in other areas of the upper body, shortness of breath, cold sweat, nausea, lightheadedness, sense of doom, call 9-1-1)
  • Weakness or sudden pain in a leg or arm
  • Signs of a stroke (FAST: F-face drooping, A-arm weakness, S-speech difficulty, T-time to call 9-1-1)
  • Constant vomiting
  • Coughing up or vomiting blood
  • Continuous bleeding
  • Deep wounds
  • Major life- or limb- threatening injuries
  • Allergic reactions to food, animal or bug bites
  • Head injuries
  • Poisoning
  • Unconsciousness
  • Suicidal or homicidal feelings

If you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, go to your nearest ER or call 9-1-1.
 

When to go to the Urgent Care Clinic:

If your illness or injury is NOT life-threatening but needs to be taken care of as soon as possible, consider an urgent care clinic. Such clinics offer extended and weekend hours, and most offer on-site diagnostic testing. Urgent care clinics are generally less expensive than the emergency room.

Visit the Urgent Care Clinic if you experience any of these common conditions:

  • General medical and injury care
  • Cold and flu
  • Earaches and eye infection
  • Sinus infection
  • Coughs and sore throat
  • Vomiting, diarrhea, stomach pain
  • High fever
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Seasonal allergies and asthma
  • Lab tests 
  • Minor injuries and burns
  • Minor backaches
  • Sports injuries and sprains
  • Minor cuts that need stitching and severe scrapes
  • School and sports physicals
  • DOT (Department of Transportation) physicals and more
  • Immunizations

 

CONTINUITY OF CARE

For your continuity of care, it is important that you have a primary care provider*. When you are sick, your primary care provider can be most helpful in that he/she has your health history and is able to make informed choices about your treatment and any testing that may be necessary.
*If you don't have a primary care provider and would like to find one, please contact the CRMC Find-A-Doctor line at 931-783-2571 or 877-377-2762 (877-DRS-CRMC).
