Urgent Care vs. Emergency Room
It’s crucial to understand the difference between an urgent medical need and an emergency medical need. AFC Short Hills can treat a lot of conditions, but some injuries or symptoms require different equipment that is found in the emergency room.
If someone has lost consciousness, is having trouble breathing, or has a compound fracture, you should seek emergency medical treatment. AFC Short Hills can treat second and first-degree burns as long as they are smaller than 3 inches. All infants younger than six months should be brought to an emergency room. If you are unsure whether or not a condition is an emergency, it may be best to play it safe and go to your local hospital.
Consider this rule of thumb: if an ailment is urgent, visit an urgent care center. If it is an emergency, visit the hospital.
