Mobile Urgent Care In Denver

Mobile Urgent Care

We all know that feeling when you start to get sick, followed by a fever, maybe a cough, or an upset stomach. Now what? Residents and visitors to Denver pick up their phones to look for the nearest urgent care. The great news is you have options, including mobile urgent care in Denver.

Denver is an amazing place to live and work and has top-notch healthcare. Patients with minor illnesses or injuries often head to the nearest urgent care for services. Denver and its suburbs have an abundance of urgent care locations and free-standing emergency rooms. Understanding the difference between these two and mobile urgent care can save you time, money, and potentially your life.

Urgent Care & ER

Denver

An urgent care offers services for illnesses and injuries that are not life-threatening. They can provide care for everything from the common cold and flu to more serious conditions like broken bones, lacerations, and concussions. Many urgent cares are open late and on weekends to accommodate patients with busy schedules.

Free-standing emergency rooms (ER) are a good option for patients with serious illnesses or injuries. These facilities are staffed with board-certified emergency physicians and provide the same level of care as a hospital ER. However, free-standing ERs often have shorter wait times and offer a more comfortable environment than a traditional hospital. The cost of free-standing ER’s can be higher than an urgent care, but they accept most major insurance plans.

Urgent care centers provide a convenient, affordable option for patients with minor illnesses and injuries. They often have limited imaging services, CT and MRI are not common in urgent care, however, an x-ray is usually available. In the Denver area, many urgent cares close at 8 pm and have limited hours on the weekend for patients.

Mobile Urgent Care

Mobile urgent care is a great option for those who want the convenience of being seen at home, at work, or in their hotel room without having to go through the hassle (and cost) of going to urgent care or ER. Mobile urgent cares are staffed with Nurse Practitioners and have access to on-site x-ray, lab, and EKG capabilities. In addition, they can provide IV fluids and medications, as well as suturing services.

Another advantage of mobile urgent care is rapid tests and dispensing of medications. For example, a patient with a strep infection could be tested and treated with antibiotics and have antibiotics dispensed to the patient. This means after being seen patients do not require a trip to the pharmacy to start treatment.

Denver Mobile Care

In Colorado altitude sickness is a common complaint, symptoms include headache, nausea, and vomiting. Many people visiting from out of state are not used to the high altitude and can become very ill very quickly. Mobile urgent care providers are trained in the treatment of altitude sickness and can provide oxygen therapy and IV fluids to help patients feel better. Mobile urgent care can also provide oxygen delivery to patients for the duration of their stay in Denver.

No one likes being sick, but when you are it is important to know your options for urgent medical care in Denver. Urgent care centers, freestanding ERs, and mobile urgent cares are all great options for those who need prompt medical attention. Whichever you choose, be sure to pick the best option for your needs.
