Acute Care

Acute care is a subset of secondary health care in which a patient receives immediate, short-term attention for a serious sickness or injury, an urgent medical condition, or while healing from surgery. In terms of medicine, acute medical treatment is the antithesis of chronic, or long-term, care.

Teams of healthcare specialists from several medical and surgical disciplines typically provide acute care services. In addition to assistance with diagnostic tests, surgery, or follow-up outpatient treatment in the community, acute care may necessitate a stay in a hospital emergency room, ambulatory surgical Centre, urgent care facility, or other short-term stay facility. Hospital-based acute inpatient care typically has the goal of discharging patients as soon as they are deemed healthy and stable. Acute care settings include emergency department, intensive care, coronary care, cardiology, neonatal intensive care, and many general areas where the patient could become acutely unwell and require stabilization and transfer to another higher dependency unit for further treatment.
