Trauma Care FAQs

Cuts, abrasions, and minor burns are just a few examples of common injuries that may require fast, effective treatment. Blue Star  Urgent Care provides a full array of trauma care services, from diagnostic imaging like X-rays to orthopedic services and sutures.

Some reasons you may need trauma care include:

  • Minor burns
  • Cuts and abrasions
  • Sprains
  • Broken bones
  • Muscle strains
  • Work-related injuries
  • Sports injuries
  • Back pain
  • Joint pain

If you or a loved one has an injury that requires medical attention right away, but you don’t want to go to the emergency room, Blue Star  Urgent Care is there for you.

Call 911 for emergency care in life-threatening situations like major trauma, poisoning, or severely impaired breathing. Major trauma may include:

  • Heavy bleeding that doesn’t stop with five minutes of pressure
  • Head injuries
  • Open fractures that involve exposed bone
  • Loss of consciousness

For milder injuries, visit Blue Star Urgent Care. They deliver the help you need without the stress of an emergency room visit or the long wait for an appointment with your family physician.

First, your Blue Star Urgent Care provider diagnoses your condition and addresses any pain. They review your medical history and perform a comprehensive physical exam. 

If imaging tests are necessary, they use their in-office X-ray to further evaluate your injury and arrive at a diagnosis.

Then, they initiate prompt treatment. Depending on your specific needs, trauma care may include:

  • Wound care, including stitches, staples, and bandaging
  • Pain medication
  • Anti-inflammatory medication
  • Antibiotic medication
  • Casting or bracing
  • Supportive devices like crutches or a sling
  • Foreign object removal

They may also recommend follow-up care, such as physical therapy. For injuries that happen at work, Blue Star Urgent Care assists with workers’ compensation claims.
