When to Go to Urgent Care for a Cut

Knowing when to seek urgent care for a cut is important for your health.

It's a good idea to visit urgent care for wound care if:

  • It is deep.
  • It won't stop bleeding after applying pressure for about 10 minutes.
  • It's from a dirty or rusty object.
  • the cut is on your face and might need special care or stitches
  • You believe you need stitches to close a wound and stop the bleeding
  • You have experienced a minor animal bite
  • Your wound is severe but not life-threatening
  • Your mild to moderate cut looks infected

Our team at CareWell Urgent Care is here to assist you with the right care for your cut, ensuring it heals properly and minimizes any risk of infection or complications.

Should I Go to the Emergency Room or Urgent Care for Deep Cuts?

If you're dealing with a deep cut, you may wonder whether urgent care or the emergency room is the best choice for your treatment.

Typically, urgent care is a great option for most cuts that require medical attention, stitches, or special care. 

You should visit an emergency room for a cut when

  • The bleeding won't stop, or blood is spurting out
  • The cut is deeper than one-quarter inch 
  • Muscle, fat, or bone is exposed
  • The cut is located over a joint that causes it to open every time you move
  • The injury is through a major artery or vein
  • There is an object stuck in the wound
  • You have sustained an amputation

For immediate care for a deep cut, call 9-1-1 now.

Understanding the Severity of Bruises: Get Treatment When You Need It

Bruises might show something serious, like if someone is being hurt on purpose, like in domestic violence, elder abuse, or child abuse. If you think someone is being hurt, it's important to tell the police right away.

Bruising happens when you get a bump or a minor accident that hits a certain part of your body. Bruises can appear anywhere on the body but are most common on the legs and arms. 

Most bruises go away by themselves, but some need extra help to heal properly.

You should get medical help for a bruise at CareWell Urgent Care if:

  • The pain caused by the bruise gets worse or doesn't go away after three days.
  • The bruised area is swollen.
  • You start getting bruises often for no reason.
  • You bleed from other parts of your body.
  • You often get big, painful bruises that last more than 3 weeks.
