QuestionWhat is difference between Urgent Care and Emergency Services?

AnswerTaking appointment for any ailment is a time taking process, hence every hospital provides urgent care and emergency care services. These are the quick medical care services provided by almost all medical centers.

Emergency services are those services required as a result of unforeseen injuries or acute illness, for which a delay in treatment would result in a permanent physical impairment, or loss of life. Such as heart attacks, strokes, poisonings, sudden inability to breathe etc.

Urgent care includes less serious medical conditions which require immediate attention. Such as fever, fractured bone, any cuts which require immediate attention, etc.
