The spring time brings warmer weather. It also brings drastic changes in weather, increased rain amounts, and more sporting accidents. People tend to spend much more time outdoors in the spring after being cooped up for the entire winter. This spring, prevent illness and injury, and be prepared to handle medical emergencies. Have a family health plan so that everyone understands how to handle a medical illness or emergency. Know when to visit your local after hours urgent care or wait until you can schedule an appointment with your primary physician. Remember the following spring and summer safety and health tips.
Wear protective equipment
A lot of people cannot wait until they can pull their bikes, roller blades, or skateboards out of the garage and roll down the city sidewalks. Remember
The U.S. healthcare system is currently going through quite a few changes, and although the end goal is to make healthcare more accessible and affordable for all Americans, right now it seems like the exact opposite has occurred. Many people simply can’t afford health insurance and therefore never see regular family care physicians for health concerns; at the same time, even though more people are visiting hospital emergency rooms as a result, dozens of hospitals and ERs across the country have closed due to their own financial troubles.
This trend has resulted in more urgent care facilities springing up everywhere — not just domestically, but in plenty of other countries as well.
