Emergency vs. Urgency
Ever wonder where the line between emergency and urgent care falls? Sometimes,
it’s hard to tell. As a general rule of thumb, go to the Emergency
Department (ED) when it seems life threatening, like a heart attack or
poisoning. Go to the walk-in clinic when it is serious but not life threatening,
and needs to be seen today, not tomorrow. Remember, call 911 if the situation
seems immediately life threatening.
