Understanding Emergency Versus Urgent Care

Chances are, you’ll likely face a critical medical situation at some point in life, so it’s important to know when you should go to the ER and when to go to an urgent care location.

If an injury or illness is life-threatening, go to the ER. If the situation is not an emergency, go to an urgent care facility instead of the ER.
