Acute Care

For Short-Term Illnesses

What is Acute Care?

In simple terms, acute care is the opposite of chronic or long-term care. Acute care refers to the treatment of short-term non-life-threatening illnesses or injuries that are not expected to require prolonged treatment. Illnesses that fall into this category include maladies such as colds or the stomach flu, and acute injuries include bone breaks or sprains.
