¿Por qué recibir atención de urgencia en vez de atención de emergencia?

Centros de atención de urgencia de Kaiser Permanente Salas de emergencias
Menos tiempo de espera: llame para registrarse y saber cuándo acudir, y se le atenderá lo antes posible. El tiempo de espera promedio en las salas de emergencias es de más de 4 horas.1
Los costos compartidos para la atención de urgencia son bajos.2 Los copagos para la atención en la sala de emergencias son mucho más altos.1
Nuestro personal sabe los medicamentos que toma, conoce sus afecciones y tiene a la mano su historia clínica. La mayoría de los hospitales no cuentan con su historia clínica, y lo atenderá un profesional que no conoce sus antecedentes médicos.
Se ofrecen servicios de laboratorio, farmacia y radiografías en un solo lugar. Es posible que deba conducir hasta una farmacia para surtir los medicamentos que le receten en la sala de emergencias.
Un enfermero de consulta le indicará cómo llegar al centro médico más cercano que ofrece atención de urgencia. Quizá no sepa dónde está el hospital más cercano.
Su médico de atención primaria recibe, de manera automática y al instante, el registro de su visita, los resultados, los medicamentos que le recetaron y más. Su médico personal solo recibe la información sobre su visita a la sala de emergencias si usted se la proporciona.

¿Necesita más información para saber cuándo acudir a un centro de atención de urgencia en vez de a la sala de emergencias? Llámenos al 800-777-7904 (TTY 711).
