Urgent Care vs Emergency Care at Premier Urgent Care in Connecticut
What is the difference between Urgent Care and Emergency Room?
There are many differences between the Emergency Room and Urgent Care Clinics as well as many reasons why urgent care centers or walk-in clinics have become so popular. There is a time and place for the Emergency Room. Using walk-in clinics effectively can save you and your family lots of time and money. A couple of things most of us could use more of!
The Emergency Room is meant for life-threatening illnesses or injuries. Emergency Room visits are typically used for extreme situations such as a stroke, heart attack, gun shots, extreme asthma attacks, seizures etc. Urgent Care or Walk-In Clinics are equipped to handle all non-life threatening cases. Whether it a fever, break, sprain, allergies, or the flu, Urgent Care facilities are here when your Primary Care Physician is not available.
