Urgent Care Q & A

When should I seek urgent care?

You need urgent care when you have an illness, chronic disease flare-up, or minor injury that needs immediate medical attention but isn’t severe enough for the emergency room (ER).

Urgent care at Frontier Adult Day Care gives you a convenient alternative to the crowded ER, where you often wait for hours while ER staff take care of people with major emergencies.

What conditions does urgent care treat?

The urgent care providers at Frontier Adult Day Care have extensive experience diagnosing and treating a wide range of health problems, including:

  • Flu
  • Cough
  • COVID-19
  • Fever
  • Strep throat
  • Skin rashes
  • Sinus infections
  • Back pain
  • Joint pain
  • Abdominal pain
  • Asthma or COPD flare-ups
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Acute and chronic pain
  • Minor wounds (cuts, abrasions, minor burns, lacerations)
  • Sprains and strains
  • Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea
  • Urinary tract infection (UTI)

This list isn’t comprehensive, so don’t hesitate to call Frontier Adult Day Care if you have another pressing health problem.

When do I need the ER instead of urgent care?

The ER is staffed with medical specialists and has the equipment to provide a higher level of care for serious injuries and life-threatening emergencies.

You should go to the ER for the following:

  • Choking
  • Fractures
  • Seizures
  • Electric shock
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Severe abdominal pain
  • Heavy or uncontrolled bleeding
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Known or suspected poisoning
  • Known or suspected overdose
  • Fever with a stiff neck, neck pain, severe headache, or skin rash
  • Heart attacks (chest pain, difficulty breathing, dizziness, and jaw, back, or arm pain)
  • Strokes (difficulty speaking, weakness in one arm, drooping on one side of the face)
  • Severe allergic reaction (difficulty breathing, swollen tongue and throat)

Don’t hesitate to call 911 if you have a life-threatening emergency. The experienced emergency medical technicians can begin immediate treatment.

What happens during my urgent care appointment?

Your Frontier Adult Day Care provider quickly assesses your condition to be sure you don’t need the ER. They learn about your symptoms and medical history, complete a physical exam, and take care of diagnostic testing. They take care of X-rays and labs like blood testing and urinalysis on-site, ensuring you get the fastest possible treatment.

After diagnosing the cause of your symptoms, they provide treatment, including repairing lacerations and wound care.
