Urgent care centers frequently encounter patients with problems that are beyond the capability of the center to treat. In this chapter we will discuss some of the commonly encountered emergencies and the medications and supplies that are suggested to be kept on hand to be used in these instances. We will also briefly discuss transfer of patients from the urgent care setting and communication with the receiving facility. The significance of syndromic surveillance and recognition of the presentation of CDC class A biological agents will also be discussed.
