Urgent Care vs. the Emergency Room

What’s the difference between the two?

It’s important to know where to go when you’re dealing with an illness or injury. Let’s look at the difference between an urgent care center and an emergency room to help you choose the right care.

If you need immediate medical attention, your first thought may be to go to the emergency room (ER). But if your condition isn’t serious or life-threatening, you may have a less expensive choice. An urgent care center provides quality care like an ER, but can save you hundreds of dollars.

If you have a life threatening situation, go to your nearest emergency room or call 911.

Urgent care centers

Sandbay Urgent care centers handle non-life-threatening situations, and many are staffed with doctors and nurses who have access to x-rays and labs onsite. Our urgent care centers open early.

Choosing an urgent care center over the emergency room (ER) can save you time and money.

Our urgent care center can treat you for common conditions such as:

• Earaches and infections

•  Minor cuts, sprains and burns

•  Fever and flu symptoms

•  Cough, cold and sore throat

•  Animal bites

•  Mild asthma

•  Urinary tract infections

•  Headaches

•  Back and joint pain

Emergency Rooms

Emergency rooms are meant for true medical emergencies. They can handle trauma, x-rays, surgical procedures, and other life-threatening situations. Most hospitals have an emergency room that’s open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

• An emergency room may be best if you experience:

• Sudden numbness or weakness

• Disorientation or difficulty speaking

• Sudden dizziness or loss of coordination

• Seizure or loss of consciousness

• Shortness of breath or severe asthma attack

• Head injury/major trauma

• Blurry or loss of vision

• Severe cuts or burns

• Heart attack, chest pain or chest pressure

• Overdose

• Uncontrolled bleeding

• Coughing or vomiting blood

• Severe allergic reactions

There is no need to wait for hours in an emergency room or pay hospital fees. SandBay accepts same-day appointments and walk-in patients, 6 days a week.  An appointment is NOT necessary, nor is waiting like you would in a hospital emergency room.
