Wound Care — Urgent Care Services for Minor Wounds
Healthonomic Primary Care offers wound care services for minor wounds. As a primary care clinic, we also offer basic urgent care services, which might include the treatment of minor acute and some chronic wounds.
The most common types of wounds we might treat include:
- Skin/tissue avulsion
Most acute wounds will heal in a few days with the proper medical treatment and attention and depending on the depth and seriousness of the wound. A wound that fails to move past the inflammation stage and remains more than a few weeks might be considered chronic.
Common Wounds We Treat at Healthonomic Primary Care
There are many wounds that can happen on any given day. During a soccer game, work accident, doing work around the house, or any other incident, an open wound is something you want to get treated in order to avoid complications or infections. Some of the common wounds we treat:
- Puncture wounds
- Cuts and scrapes
- Skin irritations
- Traumatic wounds
- Skin infections
Approaching a Minor Wound or Burn
Every situation is different and calls for its own procedures. Generally speaking, the treatment for some wounds and burns might be similar, as they both cause a disruption to the skin.
We can generally divide the wound care process into the three following categories:
Cleaning the wound
Depending on the type of wound, it is often important to begin by cleaning the wound or what is known as irrigation. The idea is to remove any contamination without removing the body’s regenerative cells that aid the healing process.
Dressing the wound
After the wound has been cleaned and all foreign matter is removed, it is important to dress the wound properly. Sometimes, this might involve a temporary dress that requires the patient to return within 24 hours in order to better assess the viable and non-viable tissue.
Home care instructions
We will likely send you home with some instructions on how to take care of the wound once you’re back home. We will guide you on how to properly care for it at home, how to bathe, how to change dressing (if necessary), and what to avoid.
