Supplement Summer Emergencies with Walk-In Clinics

by Quentin Almeida Article Content Writer

With holidays around the corner and warming weather on the horizon, your family is about to be out from behind their desks and onto the grass, gravel and sand as summer sports beckon. Little ones will be out of school with plenty of free time on their hands and you'll be chaperoning their excursions and heading on those family vacations where Murphy's Law always loves to make an example out of you. While it’s great to be cautious, there’s really no way of telling when an outing or trip is about to take an unexpected turn for the worse, so it’s important to have emergency and backup plans in place for your family, to receive the quickest and most efficient attention when an accident does happen.

As one of the most popular summertime activities, the beach alone has multiple areas for potential injury, as do plenty of other outdoor favorites, from the baseball field, to camping, the park and more. We hurt ourselves so often in the comfort of our own homes that it’s no surprise you mix a little sunshine and sweat into the mix and someone’s bound to need some kind of medical attention. Whether it’s allergies flaring up, a twist or sprain from a game, or even stepping on a seashell, these are the type of injuries that come at a moment’s notice, and more often than not, when our own doctor if out of the office.

When this is the case, we’re likely referred to urgent care or even the emergency room for non-appointment based medical attention, which can leave you high-and-dry in a waiting room for hours. The same type of assistance the emergency room may offer to non-life threatening emergencies can often be found right in the convenience of your own neighborhoods and business parks in the form of a walk-in clinic. Summer has to be one of the busiest times for doctor’s offices and major medical providers are regularly packed with patients hoping to snag an opening by waiting out the long lines. A walk-in clinic services the same type of insurance-based customers, with little to no wait times, even during the busiest months of the year.

Equipped with knowledgeable and qualified staff to run many of the same tools and tests found in emergency room set-ups, a walk-in clinic can attend to everything from minor illnesses like colds and flus, stitches for cuts and lacerations, burns and skin problems, as well as preventative measures. A walk-in clinic can be a great supplement or alternative to your family’s emergency plan for non-life threatening issues, especially during busy seasons like summer. The quick service and convenience of these facilities means you can solve the issue quickly, and get back to enjoying time with the family.
