The flu has arrived in New Castle and our surrounding communities.

If you are unfortunate enough to have flu in your home we offer the following suggestions to help you to keep it from spreading throughout your household. While these methods don't guarantee others won't get the flu, they do help to lessen the odds.

Emergency Room or Immediate Care?

Studies have found that nearly half of emergency room patients go to the ER because their doctor’s office is not open, without realizing they have another option.

Immediate Care (also known as urgent care) clinics are same-day clinics that can handle a variety of medical problems when your regular doctor is not available (or you can’t wait for an appointment).

If your sudden illness or injury is something you would normally feel comfortable addressing with your primary care doctor, then an immediate care setting is probably more appropriate than the emergency room.

Hospital emergency departments provide medical care at any time, day or night. However, unlike urgent care centers, they are equipped and staffed for the most complex or critical needs, including life-threatening situations ranging from heart attack and stroke to traumatic injuries following a car accident.
