Cuts & Lacerations Care
Cuts & Lacerations Care at AFC Urgent Care West Chester
Tumbles, falls, puncture wounds, and accidents, in general, can happen at any time inside and outside of work or home. When a bad cut or laceration occurs, it is extremely important to receive medical treatment as soon as possible, to avoid the risk of infection or contamination. Most lacerations are not life-threatening, but medical attention is important to ensure the appropriate treatment is administered promptly. With long wait-times and the high cost of the emergency room, AFC Urgent Care West Chester is a great alternative.
Another consideration -- a minor injury can become serious quickly if you are diabetic or are immuno-compromised - so don’t delay in seeking medical care with us.
Clean cuts or jagged, gaping, and bleeding wounds require prompt medical care. At AFC Urgent Care West Chester, we have a highly qualified medical team available 7 days a week to treat these types of injuries. Lacerations often require suturing, but in some cases, they can be treated with bandages or tissue glue.
We are conveniently located in the West Chester Borough at 510 E. Gay Street. Walk-in any day of the week to receive prompt high-quality medical care for injuries.
You May Need A Tetanus Booster
If the object responsible for your injury was dirty or rusty you will need to make sure your wound is thoroughly cleaned. A tetanus booster may also be necessary.
A tetanus immunization is generally good for 10 years, although depending on the incident or circumstances, a tetanus booster may be recommended during your visit for the injury.
