Here at Quick Family Urgent Care, we provide treatment for a variety of wounds and injuries. We offer treatment for sports injuries – including the most common ones, such as ankle sprains, groin pulls, hamstring strains, shin splints, knee injuries, and tennis elbow.
We also treat cuts and lacerations, burns, minor eye injuries, the removal and treatment of splinters, skin irritations (such as rashes or other irritations such as those caused by poison ivy or poison oak), and wound infections.
Depending on the severity of your cut or laceration, immediately do the following if the injury is minor: stop the bleeding by applying direct pressure; clean the wound; apply an antibiotic cream or ointment to reduce the chance of infection; place a sterile bandage over the cut or laceration.
If the wound is bleeding excessively, spurting blood, or if the bleeding isn’t stopped by pressure after ten minutes, then you should immediately call 911.
You should see a doctor if any of the following occur: if the wound is deep; over a joint; you are unable to clean the laceration or cut; if the laceration is a deep puncture wound; if the person has had a recent tetanus shot or booster (within the previous five to ten years); or if the laceration or cut is caused by a bite, from either a human or animal. As well, if your cut or laceration shows signs of infection then seek out a medical professional immediately.
Some of the signs of a wound infection include the following:
• A fever of over 101 F
• Green, purulent (cloudy), or malodorous pus coming from the wound
• Excessive wound pain that does not go away or grows worse with time
• Redness of the wound and the surrounding area
• Swelling of the wound area
• Hot skin surrounding the wound
• and a loss of function and/or movement
If you contact any of the above symptoms – or experience multiple symptoms – then contact a health professional or walk into our clinic for immediate treatment.
