If you are experience symptoms:
- You should make us aware prior to any visit to our office.
- You must be properly triaged and you should not enter our facilities without an escort and PPE (personal protective equipment).
- You may be instructed to call us from the parking lot upon arrival.
When you visit Cedar Point Health Facilities, you can be confident that:
- Patients are properly screened for COVID-19 and separated from our other patients and given masks to prevent the spread.
- We thoroughly clean our facilities throughout the day with alcohol or bleach based cleaners. Our staff are highly trained, up-to-date, and compassionate. They will help to guide you through troubled waters.
- Many patients that present with symptoms actually have the flu or another virus. We can help lead you to a proper diagnosis.
Changes to how we manage care:
- Additional screening that include face to face and over the phone screenings.
- We are starting a telemedicine program to allow certain patients the opportunity for remote care.
- Because we feel confident in our screening process and infection controls, we will continue to serve patients in all of our facilities.
Do you know when your illness is urgent or emergent? While sometimes the answer to this may seem slightly complex, knowing the difference could save your life. Here are some basic guidelines to help you make the right decision.
If a medical illness or injury is life or limb threatening or involves severe bodily damage, patients should go directly to the Emergency Room. An Urgent Care’s level of treatment is not equipped or capable of providing ER care. Examples of hen to go to the Emergency Room include:
- Coughing or vomiting blood
- Difficulty breathing
- Drug overdoses
- Head or spinal injury
- Loss of consciousness
- Serious burns
- Severe wounds and amputations
- Signs of heart attack
- Signs of stroke
- Sudden vision changes
- Uncontrolled bleeding
- Vaginal bleeding with pregnancy
Our Urgent Care facilities are designed to treat illness or injury that are non-life threatening. We specialize in quick treatment for minor emergencies. Urgent Care is less costly and a much quicker alternative to the Emergency Room. An Urgent Care visit is appropriate for:
- Bladder infections
- Bug bites or small animal bites
- Cough or sore throat
- Ear pain
- Mild fevers
- Minor burns
- Sprains or minor injuries
- Pink eye or other minor eye problems
