​Summertime Safety Tips From The Medical Professionals at MedRite Urgent Care Center, Manhattan, New York

Summertime may be coming to a close, but there is still plenty of time to take in the great outdoors with a backyard barbecue, hike in the woods, or a weekend trip down the shore. Summertime is also when medical professionals deal with a large number of non-life threatening emergencies resulting from heatstroke, dehydration, insect and bug bites, and poison ivy. 

The medical center at MedRite Urgent Care, located in Lower Manhattan, has put together the following safety tips to help you and your family enjoy the last few days of summer safely:

  1. Stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water or juices. Summer fruit like melon, watermelon, peaches, and grapes are also a healthy way to stay hydrated and get essential nutrients into your system.
  2. Wear sunscreen to avoid painful sunburn. Protecting your skin from the sun will also help to prevent skin cancer down the road.
  3. Avoid sunstroke, heat exhaustion, and headaches. Wear loose, light colored clothing. Limit time spent in direct sunlight from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Children and the elderly are most at risk of heatstroke, which is why children must never be left alone in a locked car with closed windows.
  4. Avoid tick and insect bites and poison ivy. Wear clothing that covers arms and legs.

But accidents do happen and for all non-life threatening emergencies, MedRite Urgent Care provides walk-in medical care at three convenient locations in lower Manhattan. All locations offer affordable urgent care with expert, highly qualified staff and state-of-the-art facilities. All the urgent care locations accept major insurance plans and are open late. If you have any questions about MedRite services, call (212) 826-7777. You can also use the online check-in form.
