Can you go to urgent care for a work injury?
You can definitely go to urgent care for a work injury, and in most cases, it’s probably your best option. You could go to your primary care physician, but that type of professional generally isn’t able to see patients for same-day appointments. This means you’ll have to wait for an appointment, for service, and for treatment. Another option is to go to the ER (emergency room), but the ER is for life-threatening traumas and if you go there for a minor injury, you’ll also have to wait for care.
With urgent care, however, you don’t need to make an appointment or wait at all for care. Same-day service is no problem at all for urgent care. Also, urgent care can easily handle work-related injuries that require workers’ comp services, so there’s no reason not to go there.
What work injuries can be treated at urgent care?
Urgent care is for any health-related issue that’s minor and urgent. This includes common work injuries like minor cuts that need stitches, simple fractures that need stabilization and casts, minor sprains or strains that need bandaging, repetitive strain injuries that need rehabilitation, minor respiratory ailments, minor eye injuries, and any other minor work-related injuries. So long as the issue is non-life-threatening, it can be treated at urgent care.
Here at PrimeHealth Urgent Care, we’re equipped to handle common work-related injuries and provide any related services like casts, stitches, referrals for rehabilitative services, X-rays for advanced diagnoses, ultrasounds for other diagnoses, and other services. After we’ve treated you, we’ll provide any other care and services you’ll need, including any continual care services or referrals for continual care. Another component of our care is providing workers’ comp services.
Does urgent care provide workers’ comp services?
An urgent care clinic like ours provides work injury services like evaluations, diagnoses, and treatments, and we can forward any relevant information to workers’ comp. This means we can provide them with all the filled out paperwork they’ll need in order to negotiate with your employer. In our paperwork, we’ll do our absolute best to represent your needs to workers’ comp and your employer. If you’re an employer, we’ll provide any of the aforementioned services your employee needs so he or she can return to work well.
