Emergency care vs. urgent care
Urgent care centers, which are "walk-in clinics," typically treat minor illnesses. Emergency rooms (ERs) treat patients with critical injuries and illnesses. Knowing the types of conditions treated at each location will help you know when to visit an ER or urgent care facility.
If you are experiencing a life-threatening medical emergency, call 911.

- Blood in stool
- Broken bones
- Coughing or throwing up blood
- Deep wounds with heavy bleeding
- Head injuries and concussions
- High fever
- Severe allergic reactions
- Severe burns
- Severe dehydration
- Severe headaches, dizziness and/or confusion
- Suspected drug/alcohol overdose
- Suspected heart attack or stroke
- Suspected poisoning
- Trouble breathing
- Uncontrolled nausea or diarrhea

- Bites, stings, poison ivy, hives or rashes
