When to Go to an Urgent Care for Stitches
Not every bump or bruise requires professional medical care, but it’s important to know when to seek treatment from a trained healthcare provider. In general, you may need to receive stitches at an urgent care center if your wound:
Is longer or deeper than half an inch, roughly
Is gaping or wide
Is a puncture wound from an animal or human bite
Contains pieces of debris, such as glass or dirt
Even if stitches aren’t necessary to treat your injury, it’s still important to have a medical professional evaluate these types of wounds to properly clean and bandage the area and prevent infection.
When to Call 911
Some wounds can be treated with stitches at an urgent care facility, but not all. Be sure to call 911 immediately if a wound:
Exposes fatty tissue, muscle, or bone
Bleeds heavily for more than 10 minutes, even after direct pressure is applied
Is located directly over a joint, on the scalp, or near the eyes
Leads to loss of consciousness or trouble breathing

"We have a special needs daughter who needed her foot looked at. Thankful that Affinity accepted her Medicaid first of all. Staff was nice, did not have a long wait, doctor was knowledgeable and understanding with our daughter, which means a lot. She was able to get x-rays done on her foot and received the results before we left. A great place to go on short notice."
"Facility was very clean. Very short wait. The doctor and x-ray tech were great!!"
