When to Seek Urgent Care for a Cut or Scrape
If an injury is bleeding profusely, affects a significantly large portion of the body, threatens the life of the patient, or is otherwise severe enough to warrant immediate care, you should seek emergency services right away. On the other hand, if an injury is bad enough that at-home remedies aren’t doing the trick, but emergency help is not needed, that is when urgent care comes into play. If you or your child have a cut or scrape that meets the following criteria, urgent care services can help:
- Bleeding that persists for more than 10 minutes
- Signs of infection, such as inflammation or weeping fluid, are present
- Objects or debris are stuck in the wound
- The injury was caused by metal or something dirty, like a nail
Treatment for cuts and scrapes can involve cleaning the wound, applying anesthetics or antibiotics, bandaging the injury, applying stitches or a liquid stitch, and potentially administering a tetanus shot depending on the cause of the wound and when the patient last received this immunization.
