Acute Care Q & A

What is acute care?

Acute care is a type of medical care that addresses problems that only last for a short time. These issues are typically easy to treat, and even if they don’t have specific cures, they usually resolve themselves eventually. 

Cross Hope Treatment Centers specializes in providing acute care during detailed sick visits, which you can schedule at any time. Your provider can give you a detailed evaluation and care recommendations.

Acute care is different from emergency care. While many medical emergencies are acute issues, acute care centers may not have the resources or equipment to rapidly address your issue. If your medical concern involves a lot of bleeding, a long-term high fever, or a head injury, you should forgo an acute care visit and instead go to the emergency room. 

Which conditions can acute care address?

Acute care at Cross Hope Treatment Centers can take care of many common medical concerns. Even if you’re not sure what’s affecting you, your provider can assess your symptoms and provide the necessary medical testing to make a diagnosis. 

You can schedule an acute care visit at Cross Hope Treatment Centers for:

Mild illnesses

Short-term illnesses like the common cold, COVID-19, the flu, and strep throat can all benefit from a visit to your primary care provider. Even stand-alone symptoms like stomachaches, headaches, and fevers can receive acute care remedies. 

Minor injuries

Cuts, bruises, and even smaller broken bones like your toes and fingers don’t require an emergency room. Instead, Cross Hope Treatment Centers provide acute care like bandaging and antibiotics to help small injuries heal.  

What should I expect during an appointment for acute care?

Acute care appointments at Cross Hope Treatment Centers take very little of your time. When you first arrive, your provider measures your height and weight before recording your vital signs. They review your medical history and may ask for any health updates that have happened since your last visit. 

Your provider can then evaluate your current symptoms. You should go into detail about when your symptoms started and if they’ve changed over time. Medical testing, like blood tests or urinalysis, may be necessary to rule out or identify the exact cause of your symptoms. 

Once you know what’s going on, your provider can recommend treatments and remedies. If your illness is contagious, they may tell you to stay home until your symptoms resolve.
