What is Walk-In Clinic and When Should You Use It?

Life threatening emergencies, such as a heart attack or a serious head injury, require a visit to the Emergency Department (also most commonly referred to as the Emergency Room (ER) at the hospital).
When faced with a medical problem that necessitates care, it is often hard to assess if it is truly an emergency. Here are some guidelines to use to help you determine what is the best location for you to receive proper treatment.

Some examples of conditions that require emergency medical care include:
• Severe chest pain or difficulty breathing
• Compound fracture (bone protrudes through the skin)
• Convulsions, seizures or loss of consciousness
• Fever in newborn (less than 3 months old)
• Heavy, uncontrolled bleeding
• Deep knife wounds or gunshot wounds
• Moderate to severe burns
• Poisoning
• Serious head, neck or back injury
• Pregnancy-related problems
• Severe abdominal pain
• (Signs of) Heart attack (i.e. Chest pain lasting longer than 2 minutes)
• (Signs of) Stroke (i.e. Loss of vision, sudden numbness, weakness, slurred speech, confusion)
• Suicidal or homicidal feelings

Some examples of walk-in visits:
• Accidents or falls
• Sprains and strains
• Moderate back problems
• Breathing difficulties (mild to moderate asthma)
• Bleeding/cuts—not a lot of bleeding but may require stitches
• Eye irritations
• Fever or flu
• Vomiting, diarrhea, dehydration
• Severe sore throat or cough
• Minor broken bones (fingers/toes)
• Skin rashes and infections
• Urinary tract infections
• Diagnostic services, including labs and x-ray

Patient Satisfaction

TCLMH's mission is "Touching lives with compassion and a commitment to excellence." One way that we measure how well we are meeting this mission is by the input our customers give us. If you have a great experience we want to hear about it. Hearing about the services and staff that you enjoyed the most, helps us to recognize and reward our team.

If we fell short of your expectations, we want to hear about it. Bill Gates once said, "Your most unhappy customers are your greatest source of learning." At TCLMH, we are committed to receiving customer concerns and viewing them as ideas for growth and improvement. For example in 2011, our parking spaces were widened to enable our customers to access our facility with ease; and a wall mirror was placed in the Acute hallway after a customer voiced their concern about potential collisions at the intersection.

After you receive services at TCLMH and our Family Care Clinics in WaKeeney and Ellis, please take a moment to fill out your patient satisfaction survey. Each visit can provide a new experience for our customers, and we want to hear about it!
