Project Description

Lacerations

The overall treatment depends on the type, cause, and depth of the wound, and whether other structures beyond the skin (dermis) are involved. Treatment of recent lacerations involves examining, cleaning, and closing the wound. Minor wounds, like bruises, will heal on their own, with skin discoloration usually disappearing in 1–2 weeks. Abrasions, which are wounds with intact skin (non-penetration through dermis to subcutaneous fat), usually require no active treatment except keeping the area clean, initially with soap and water. Puncture wounds may be prone to infection depending on the depth of penetration. The entry of puncture wound is left open to allow for bacteria or debris to be removed from inside.

According to level of contamination, a wound can be classified as:

  • Clean wound – made under sterile conditions where there are no organisms present, and the skin is likely to heal without complications
  • Contaminated wound – usually resulting from accidental injury; there are pathogenic organisms and foreign bodies in the wound.
  • Infected wound – the wound has pathogenic organisms present and multiplying, exhibiting clinical signs of infection (yellow appearance, soreness, redness, oozing pus).
  • Colonized wound – a chronic situation, containing pathogenic organisms, difficult to heal (i.e. bedsore).

WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY

These are actual comments from actual patients who have visited Dairy Road Urgent Care.

This place is the best. They’re so kind, professional, and fast. I would recommend them to anyone, old, young, or in between.

Staff is very friendly. I’ve never had to wait long. Doctors and PA’s really listen to you. They also follow up with detailed questions to get to the problem. I’ve never felt like they were rushed or disinterested. They are my 1st choice for urgent care.

My visits here for me and my children have all been helpful, good visits so far, a lot better than our experience at DOCCS.
