Urgent Care Q & A

What is urgent care?

Urgent care is available at Rightplace Family Clinic for anyone with an acute illness or injury that needs prompt medical attention but isn’t life-threatening. If your condition is life-threatening, for example, heart attack symptoms or a severe wound, go to your nearest hospital emergency room or dial 911.

Routine appointments booked in advance are great for preventive medicine services or chronic disease management. However, if you need to see a provider quickly, you can make a same-day appointment or simply walk in at Rightplace Family Clinic.

What treatment might I need for an urgent problem?

Rightplace Family Clinic offers comprehensive treatment options for urgent health problems, including:

Wound care

Wounds, like cuts and burns, need careful cleaning and dressing. You might also need sutures, glue, or staples to repair a cut.


You might need antibiotics if you have a bacterial infection. If you have a viral infection, antibiotics are of no use, but in severe cases, your provider might recommend antiviral drugs. Soothing creams can help with rashes, and eye drops can treat pink eye.


You or your child might need fluids with electrolytes if you’ve had prolonged vomiting and diarrhea or become overheated. Rightplace Family Clinic offers IV (intravenous) fluids to quickly rehydrate the body.

Strapping and splinting

If you or your child has a sprain, strain, or minor fracture, your urgent care provider can apply strapping or a splint to immobilize the damaged tissues.
