When to Seek Care at an Emergency Room: Important Information for Residents of Mission Viejo, CA

Emergency Care Mission Viejo CAAn individual in Mission Viejo, California, may require emergency care for a variety of reasons. Sometimes, a urinary tract infection or stomach bug can prevent an employee or student from performing well at work or school. In other instances, a life-threatening injury or illness may strike. It goes without saying that there are plenty of conditions that warrant emergency care, so it’s important to know what conditions can be treated at a walk in clinic and what should be cared for in the emergency room.

In short, patients with conditions that are life threatening should call 911 or visit the nearest emergency room. Here are potential indicators of such conditions:

  • Chest pain
  • Heavy bleeding that cannot be controlled
  • Abrupt change in vision
  • Sudden dizziness, weakness, or sharp pain in the body
  • Breathlessness or difficulty breathing
  • Confused or unusual behavior
  • Severe or persistent vomiting
  • Coughing up or vomiting blood

On the other hand, a patient whose condition is not considered life threatening can typically receive the emergency care he or she needs at a walk in clinic. At Marque Urgent Care in Mission Viejo, CA, our physicians (not advanced practice clinicians) have ample experience treating pediatric and adult patients with:

  • Flu symptoms

  • Broken bones
  • Sprains and strains
  • Lacerations
  • Skin rashes
  • Minor burns
  • Concussions (specialized care provided through our HeadStrong program)
  • Other non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries
