Getting Medical Care
This four-page handout educates people about knowing where to go to get medical care. It provides information about when to go to an Emergency Department (ED), Urgent Care, or doctor’s office, health clinic, free clinic, or health department. The document provides tips to help people identify the kinds of tests and routine checkups that can be done at the doctor's office or clinic, the more serious injuries and illnesses that would require a visit to urgent care, and emergencies that require calling 911 and going to the ED. It clarifies those symptoms in a baby or young child for which 911 should be called immediately.
