From the Inside Flap

Urgent Care Emergencies
Avoiding the Pitfalls and Improving the Outcomes

If you see patients in an urgent care center, minor injury unit or other acute care setting, this new clinically-focused guide will help you avoid high-risk pitfalls and achieve optimal outcomes.

This must-have resource covers a wide range of emergencies that may be encountered in an urgent care setting, focusing on those that can occur with the most commonly-encountered complaints and conditions, including:

  • Genitourinary complaints
  • Common infections
  • Orthopedic injuries
  • Wounds
  • Back pain
  • Dermatologic complaints

The book also includes chapters on common pitfalls during the HEENT examination, effective patient communications, urgent care pharmacology pitfalls, special issues in the care of pediatric and geriatric patients, and more. Each chapter is authored by an experienced acute care clinician and includes clinical pearls that you can apply directly to the care of your own patients.

The urgent care center can be a challenging and fast-paced environment, and pitfalls, especially those encountered during emergencies, can have serious consequences for patients' immediate well-being, their recovery time, and possibly their long-term prognosis. More than ever, you need a resource you can trust that has been tailored specifically to the needs of providers in the low-acuity setting.
