Acute Care Clinic
Acute care is a branch of secondary health care where a patient receives active but short-term treatment for a severe injury or episode of illness, an urgent medical condition, or a crisis. In medical terms, care for acute health conditions is the opposite from chronic care, or longer-term care. In its simplest form, Acute care is simply an active treatment response for short-term needs.
Acute care has historically been directly associated with medical care, similar to an urgent care setting. Where we are unique is that our Acute Care Clinic can not only meet the immediate medical needs of patients, but we can also meet their needs for behavioral health. From stitches to suicidal ideations, allergic reactions to anxiety, fractures to failed attempts at sobriety – we are well equipped and ready to treat whatever walks through the door in the best way we can.
Acute care doesn’t necessarily require an appointment, but appointments can be scheduled for that day if you call ahead. Acute care is appropriate for patients who have no current access to care or any identified PCP, and also appropriate for patients who have established care (at our clinic or elsewhere) who may not be able to get into their established provider that day or they have an immediate need that requires attention. This is an excellent alternative to the hospitals or emergency rooms who are often overutilized for services that could be more appropriately treated in the community.
It is our job to make access to care the priority when individuals and families need it most. We always try to remember, we may be the only intervention that patient ever gets, so we need to do our best to engage people where they are at – especially in times of crisis. The main goal of acute care is to medically stabilize the patient and ensure safety, the secondary goal is to get the patient established with a provider for medical and/or behavioral health so their ongoing needs can be met.
The Acute Care Clinic is open M-TH 8a-5p and Fridays 8a-3p – call (402) GET-HELP or come in!
In her spare time, she loves to travel (favorite trips have been Jamaica, Hawaii, and Greece), bake, exercise, bicycle, ski, spend time with her two Cavalier King Charles dogs, and most of all spend time with her two adult daughters and husband of 30 years. She is excited to bring her experience to Pine Lake Behavioral Health & Medical Clinic and looks forward to taking care of your family or helping you find the care you need.
