You know you need medical care, but do you know if your symptoms require urgent or emergency care? An emergency threatens life, limb, or eyesight or involves maternity or psychiatric care. If you have an emergency, go to the nearest emergency room. or call 911. If overseas, call the emergency medical service for your area. Urgent care is care you need within 24 hours for a non-emergency illness or injury that requires treatment.
