Longer Days & Hot Weather: How to Stay Safe All Summer Long

Longer Days & Hot Weather: How to Stay Safe All Summer LongDuring the next few months, our families will be a little more active than normal with school being out and vacations planned for the near future. We will soon be enjoying, excursions, playing on the beach, visiting the parks, and barbecuing a lot more often. With all of this extra activity, comes the unfortunately increased chance of injury. Summer Safety is about being aware of your surroundings, preparation, and having a detailed plan of action if someone needs help.
When your child, you, or a loved one gets a bad sunburn, dehydration, falls, breaks a bone, or gets overheated, it can be quite scary, and the emergency room is not a place that most of us want to sit around waiting for hours on end. Fortunately, there is another option! Urgent care clinics are an excellent alternative to the ER unless of course, it’s a life-threatening situation. However, urgent care facilities can treat many injuries or illness from, broken bones, sore throats, poison ivy rashes, and stomach viruses to giving tetanus shots and taking x-rays.
Quick Care Med Urgent Care Vs. Emergency Room
If your health needs are not emergent like a heart condition or other impending lifesaving issues, the benefit of urgent care in comparison are numerous. To name a few, the wait time will be much shorter. For the most part, urgent care can see their patients within an hour. The cost is also much less with urgent care than it is with emergency room treatment. Quick Care Med urgent care provides you with the proper paperwork to follow up with your primary care physician or specialist, as urgent care takes initiatives to keep the line of communication open to make certain that your treatment is a top priority.
