Middelsex Hospital Urgent Care Madison
This afternoon (Sunday), my 2 yo son woke up complaining of ear pain which escalated very quickly at 410pm. We noticed the clinic was closing at 430 and called to see whether they had a cut off time. We explained that we were hoping to bring my son in for ear pain and the receptionist, Helen, said that if we could get to the clinic by 430 we would be seen. After doing the mad dash with my 2 year old, I pulled into the parking lot at 426 and was at the door by 427 which was locked. Helen came to the door and yelled that they were closed. I explained through the door, that we had just spoken to her, and she stated that they closed at 430. I showed that my phone said 428 and she refused to open the door and let us in. I have the utmost respect for the medical professionals at middlesex and we utilize them as primary care physicians in town. Had Helen said that they only take people who arrive by 425, I would have respected this and not packed up my already ailing son to rush down there.
Tips & Advices
This depends on the facility. Patients should call to find out if they'll need a referral from their physician prior to making an appointment.
Aside from hyperbaric oxygen treatment, most wound care centers offer:
  • Debridement: The removal of dead skin and tissue surrounding the wound. This can be done surgically, using a whirlpool bath, syringes, enzymes that dissolve the tissue, or wet dressings that dry on the wound and absorb the dead tissue.
  • Dressing: Wrapping the wound in a protective film, gauze, gel, or foam.
  • Compression stockings: Tight-fitted fabric sheaths that encourage blood flow.
  • Artificial skin: A covering that is applied to the wound for several days as it heals.
  • Ultrasound: The use of sound waves to promote healing.
  • Growth factor therapy: The use of materials naturally produced by the body to encourage quick cell growth.
  • Negative pressure therapy: Creating a vacuum around a wound to encourage faster blood flow to the area.
Depending on where the treatment is administered, hyperbaric oxygen treatment  can cost $100- $1,000. After insurance is applied, patients may have a copay of $10 -$50 or a coinsurance fee of 10 percent to 50 percent.
Most wounds should heal within two to six weeks. An individual should seek chronic wound treatment if a wound has not begun to heal after two weeks or is not completely healed after six.
Most health insurance plans cover wound care. Patients should check with the clinic and their health insurance provider before seeking treatment to be sure.
