This hospital saved my life. I went in there with lower stomach pains, the diagnosed me with a bad UTI, and prescribed me with a well known antibiotic for that problem. Unfortunately I was still sick and started to get tremors to the point I thought I was going to break my teeth off from chattering my teeth too much and my body basicaly just quit and shut down and was actually admitted into plano medical center a week later, plano medical center told me the antibiotics were not working but continue to take them, which seemed insane to me. A couple of days later I returned to lake point in Wylie and explained what happened and of course got some raised eyebrows. They did a full exam on me and it showed my infection had actually spread to my uterus and kidneys, I was so sick my body was about to shut down. They gave me a strong antibiotic immediately through an IV, and sent me home with two very strong antibiotics and a couple of days later I was back to myself again. I still have chills down my spine thinking what would have happened if those angels at life path hadn't saved my life. Thank you again guys for your help.
Tips & Advices
Emergency care facilities can treat infants and children. Roughly 16 percent of emergency patients are infants and children, so the medical professionals at these facilities typically have strong experience in pediatric emergency care.
The average wait time will depend on the type of emergency care facility.. Wait times typically average less than 20 minutes at an urgent care facility. At a hospital-based emergency care facility that treats life-threatening conditions, wait times can take as long as an hour or more.
Board certification is not required for emergency care facilities. However, the top facilities are often board certified. At hospitals, many emergency care centers require that their physicians be board certified as a qualification for employment. Two boards that handle this type of certification are the American Board of Medical Specialties and the American Osteopathic Board of Emergency Medicine.
Emergency care facilities include those that offer urgent care, and some urgent care facilities offer certain primary care services. At these facilities, patients are usually evaluated upon arrival, and a determination is made as to whether the problem requires emergency care, urgent care, or primary care.
Some medical tests and scans are performed at emergency care facilities. These facilities may perform select X-rays and blood tests if this is deemed necessary to assist your treatment. However, the range of medical tests and scans offered is much more limited than those offered as part of standard hospital care.
