Urgent Care is a branch of the hospitalist model where a patient walks in with an emergency and requires immediate attention. The urgent care staff needs to be quick and needs to be aware of a diverse range of problems that he might face. Hence, we train our staff in the urgent care department with rigorous training sessions that can get very challenging at times. We believe that challenges lead to success, and the more experience you have, the better you can perform your tasks. Thus, our team comprises of highly specialized and experienced personnel who have known to excel in the urgent care service department.
Urgent care services can be as minor as a pain in your chest and can go as major as an open wound, which requires immediate stitching.
Three types of urgent care services are given highest importance:
- Acute illnesses
- Chronic illnesses
Urgent care services can also deal with life-threatening problems such as heart attacks; thus, when a patient walks into an emergency room, there are a lot of different patients with different levels of problems. Therefore, it is important to make the environment clean and comfortable for the patients. Our nursing staff and other team members use effective communication skills to ease the patients in order to make them feel comfortable without stressing them out. Given the highest importance to life-threatening cases, we do not leave minor injuries unattended. Each patient is treated equally with the highest quality of services as we believe in equality, and no one receives better treatment than the other.
Every patient who walks in the urgent care service department is the same for us, and we treat them with the priority that would be given to a family member if needed. At Optimum Care, we believe in a family-run model where all the staff is like family, as are the patients.
With increased expenditure in research and development, we keep upgrading our service quality, and through innovation, we learn more about how to become more effective and efficient in delivering our services.
