When Should I Seek Sick Care?

When you get sick or have a minor injury, VNA is here for you. Same Day Care is available and appointments are available during the early morning, evening and on weekends for the patient’s convenience. Whether VNA is already your primary care provider or if you are currently with another provider, you can visit any of the VNA Health Care clinics in the Chicago suburbs. Our board-certified family practice providers, internal medicine doctors, podiatrists, optometrists, obstetricians, gynecologists, pediatricians, dentists, nurse practitioners and registered nurses are trained to offer primary care.

At VNA, patients are encouraged to schedule annual visits, regular lab work, mammograms, screenings, and other preventive care. However, despite these measures, sometimes patients may experience various acute illnesses including the flu or a minor injury such as a sprained ankle. VNA doctors and nurse practitioners are well-equipped to help VNA patients navigate these common healthcare situations and to treat health issues and chronic conditions that don’t pose an immediate life-threatening emergency. Here are a few examples:

Diagnostic Services: Our on-site laboratories offer a wide range of services including blood work, health screenings, pregnancy tests, pap smear tests, and much more.

Skin Problems: Do you have a rash or a skin infection that’s not getting better with home remedies? Our on-site dermatologists will be happy to take a look and figure out what’s going on and how to treat it.

Cold or Flu Symptoms: If you have breathing difficulties, sore throat, severe cough, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea, come see us right away. We can prescribe medication for immediate relief and ensure you’re properly hydrated for faster recovery.

Eye Problems: Itchy, swollen, or red eyes may not be painful, but they can definitely disrupt your life. Our sick care team can take a look and provide the treatment you need.

Simply put, VNA is there to provide the sick care you need in a primary care setting. There is no need to spend the night waiting in to be seen in an emergency room when you can be quickly seen at VNA in the morning. For those looking for care for themselves or their family, but don’t have the time for a lengthy, expensive ER visit, VNA’s extensive primary care services are the solution.

VNA provides same-day medical care services addressing acute conditions and symptoms for patients throughout Aurora, Bolingbrook, Bensenville, Carol Stream, Elgin, Joliet, Romeoville, Wheaton, and the surrounding areas in suburban Chicago. Whether you have health insurance, are uninsured, or are underinsured, you will receive the same level of quality care at VNA.

Sick Care vs. Health Care vs. Emergency Care

Sick care refers to care that treats an illness or injury. It is focused on crisis intervention – providing immediate relief from symptoms that are disrupting the patient’s life. Health care, on the other hand, is about determining the root cause of a health condition and working on it to promote optimal health maintenance.

Typical acute health issues including minor scrapes, sprains, rashes, animal bites, sinus/ear infections, allergies, and sniffles, would be considered as sick care. The benefit of VNA is that although the level of medical care required in these situations may be minimal, VNA’s experienced primary care providers will also provide preventative healthcare and chronic disease management where needed at the same appointment.

If you are suffering from complications due to chronic diseases like diabetes or Alzheimer’s, you will have access to VNA’s vast array of primary care providers comprised of physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, dietitians, behavioral medicine practitioners, pharmacists, social workers, CNA’s, and so on. Health care or primary care services focus on preventive measures so you can live a healthy lifestyle.

Emergency care, as the name suggests, is for situations where every second counts. A delay in care could mean the difference between life and death (or permanent disability). This is when you’re supposed to visit the emergency room or call 911:

  • When a person stops breathing
  • When someone is choking
  • An injury to the neck, spine, or head
  • Severe chest pain or pressure
  • Severe burns
  • Electric shock or lightning strike
  • Broken bones (the bone is protruding from the skin)
  • Severe bleeding
  • Inhalation or ingestion of poisonous substances
  • Overdoses

*Sick care or urgent care services are not meant for these life-threatening medical situations.
