This is a good question, and it really depends on the type and severity of the wound. Cuts, lacerations, punctures, scrapes, and scratches are the different types of wounds, and they require different treatments. Sometimes a minor wound requires no treatment at all, while other times the wound is significant, so immediate treatment is necessary. Before you seek treatment, it’s important to remove any jewelry (especially rings) from the area, as the area might swell and the jewelry might worsen symptoms.
There are several main concerns with wounds. Infection, bleeding, and possible internal damage are these main concerns. Some wounds require immediate treatment to prevent these issues from occurring or worsening, but if the wounds are left untreated, the issues can cause greater health risks.
Minor wounds can be treated at urgent care clinics like ours. A minor wound is one that is not life-threatening. For example, if you have a minor cut but can control the bleeding, then this is likely a minor wound. However, if you have a cut and can’t control the bleeding, then this is an emergency which requires care at the ER (emergency room). This is just one example of a wound that requires emergency care. All major wounds, which are wounds that are or could be life-threatening, must be treated at the ER.
Any kind of minor wound can be treated at urgent care. They can prevent infection, further bleeding, and other possible complications of minor wounds, and they can do this for patients without appointments. This means you can simply walk right into urgent care for on-the-spot treatment for any minor wound. Urgent care can see patients of any age (6 months or older), so you can bring in your child or an elderly family member for treatment.
Some of the ways urgent care will treat wounds are by cleaning, disinfecting, bandaging, and/or stitching up wounds. They can also provide antibiotics if necessary. Again, the type of treatment depends on the type of wound. At Minit Medical, we can even provide tetanus shots too.
