Holidays are traditionally a time to reconnect with family and friends, and enjoy some well-deserved rest and relaxation. But, unexpected non-emergency healthcare can put a damper on holiday spirits. Columbus, OH: In the movie “The Christmas Story”, all 9-year-old Ralphie wants for Christmas is an official Red Ryder BB rifle. Unfortunately, the repeated warnings from teachers and family is that he will “shoot his eye out” actually happened. Luckily, he wasn’t seriously hurt. But, if that happened to you on Christmas Day or New Year’s Day, you might have a hard time locating a doctor to check the injury. Although the Ralphie rifle incident from a movie may not happen, more common situations such as a child waking up feeling feverish, Grandma’s holiday meal “just doesn’t set right,” or you feel the flu coming on, a trip to the emergency department (ED) may seem like an over-reaction. Yet, you don’t want to wait for your doctor’s office to open the next business day. So, what do you do? Unfortunately, those needing immediate, nonemergency care on a holiday have limited choices: Go to the emergency department (ED) or tough it out. Now, there’s a third option for non-emergency care when your doctor’s office is closed.
