What is acute care management?

Acute care management at Guardian Angels Health Center consists of treatments for brief episodes of illnesses or injuries. In comparison, chronic care management is medical care for a long-lasting illness or disease. Some of the main benefits of acute care include faster healing, less pain, and a low risk of troublesome complications.

The Guardian Angels Health Center providers offer highly effective treatments for patients of all ages who are struggling with common acute problems.

Why might I need acute care?

You may require acute care at Guardian Angels Health Center if you or a loved one has:

  • High or long-lasting fever
  • Strep throat
  • Ear infection
  • Pink eye
  • Allergic reaction
  • Flu or cold
  • Pneumonia
  • Bronchitis
  • Animal bites
  • Fatigue
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea
  • Fractures
  • Lacerations
  • Non-healing wounds
  • Urinary tract infections (UTIs)
  • Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)

Sometimes, illnesses and injuries resolve on their own without medical intervention, but other times you need care from a specialist to recover properly.

Is acute care management right for me?

To find out which acute care medical services are best for you, your provider checks your pulse, blood pressure, temperature, and other vital signs. They also weigh you and evaluate your body mass index (BMI).


Then, your provider reviews your symptoms, personal and family medical history, medication regimen, and lifestyle habits. Next, they evaluate your eyes, ears, breathing, throat, neck, heartbeat, abdomen, reflexes, and more. 


In addition, your provider might order diagnostic tests, such as nasal or throat swabs, urine tests, blood tests, heart or lung function testing, X-rays, or other imaging procedures.

Which acute care management options are available?

Guardian Angels Health Center offers an array of acute care management services based on your unique needs. They may recommend home remedies, such as getting more rest, drinking a lot of fluids, and wearing a brace to allow an injury to heal.

You might need IV therapy, an inhaler, over-the-counter or prescription medicines, wound care, fracture care, or additional medical treatments to enhance your recovery. 

Your Guardian Angels Health Center provider can refer you to another specialist or a hospital if you have a complex medical problem. They follow up with you to ensure your treatment works effectively and make changes to your regimen when needed to achieve optimal health.
