You need to know where to go when you have been injured or you become sick. Your doctor’s office and the ER are just two of the places to go. It can be more convenient to go to after hours care, especially when something goes wrong over the weekend. What they can treat may surprise you.
If you break your arm (or leg or anything else), it’s important to get it treated right away. After hours care will have a digital x-ray machine to be able to see whether it is an actual break or just a strain. From there, a cast can be created and Prime Urgent Care is also equipped to provide crutches and splints.
Your body temperature is an indication of whether you are healthy or not. A too high or too low temperature is an indication that something may be wrong. Your body may not be able to fight it on its own and going to see a doctor can help to identify the problem. There may be medication to be taken or it could be a symptom of something more severe.
A bad cough is not something you want to continue for longer than necessary. Whether you are coughing up phlegm or not, it needs to be checked out. A doctor can listen to your chest, prescribe you cough medicine, or even provide you with other cold medication to help get the symptoms under control.
An upset stomach can be uncomfortable and it may be associated with diarrhea or vomiting. Rather than trying over-the-counter medications that may not work, it can be more advantageous to head into a Pearland medical clinic where a doctor can perform a full medical exam and determine whether it’s food poisoning, a stomach bug, or something else.
It happens from time to time. We forget to drink as much fluids as we should and as a result, dehydration occurs. There’s often no need to go to the hospital because triage will look at the issue as not being very serious and you could wait for hours. An after hours care facility can see you right away, ensuring that you get the fluids needed to make a speedy recovery.
