Default Re: Urgent Care Facilities v. ER

The only experience we had recently is needing to go the the Urgent care facility in Sumter Landing for a leg pain problem. The Urgent care facility needed a ultra sound to rule out a possible blood cloth and indicated we would have to go to the ER or a private facility. Since it was after 5PM the private facilities were closed and the only option was a ER. The doctor then indicated the ERs at the VIllages and Leesburg were both very crowded and in divert status. ?? Whats divert status we asked ??? Well that means they can't accept any more patents and patents would be diverted to another hospital ( Ocala I guess since Leesburg was also in divert status). We decided to wait until the next morning for the ultra sound but it sure didn't give us a warm fuzzy about the area hospitals ability to handle an emergency, especially considering the Villages hospital recently enlarged by a fair amount.
