Practicing Workplace Wellness in the Classroom

Sweet summertime is winding down, which means the kiddos are back in school. The transition from summer into the classroom instills a sense of routine in children, as they prepare to learn new things. One thing they must be taught is how to stay healthy during the school year. When school is in session, germs are easily spread from person to person throughout the classroom.

When to Visit a Walk-In Clinic Over a Food Recall

Over the past few weeks, there has been a lot of information spread about various food recalls due to possible salmonella contamination. Food recalls can be scary and alarming, especially when everytime you open social media, it seems that there is a new one to worry about. A lot of recalls are voluntary, or just a precaution. Others are because there have been reported illnesses. You don’t have to go throw away everything that you have in your pantry. You also don’t need to fast from eating. We do, however, urge you to understand the symptoms of salmonella, a common foodborne illnesses.

Should You Visit a Walk-In Clinic for Your Sunburn?

Spending time outside in the sun is one of the best ways for you to absorb Vitamin D, which is essential to healthy bones. However, too much time in the sun can also lead to sunburns, something we’ve all experienced at some point in our lives. You should always take measures to prevent them and protect your skin, by wearing an SPF lotion during long periods of time outside. But, things happen. We forget our sunscreen or forget to re-apply. Most of the time, sunburns will go away on their own, although they can be severe. How do you know when to visit a walk-in clinic because of one? 

Enabling Workplace Wellness with Water

If you’ve stepped outside lately, then you know it’s hot...really hot. Dehydration can make us feel under-the-weather, sick, and can even be dangerous. Because of these reasons, staying hydrated is a vital component of workplace wellness. When your employees aren’t feeling well, they won’t perform as well. Simple as that. Workplace wellness isn’t just important for the individual. The entire company benefits when everyone is feeling their best, showing up to work, and completing their assigned tasks.

You Should Visit a PCP Over This Bug Bite

During the summer, we take advantage of the longer days and good weather to spend time in the great outdoors! However, all kinds of pesky little bugs come out when the weather is warm, like flies and mosquitos. They’re easy to see and swat away, plus their bite isn’t usually a cause for alarm. 

Ticks are another story. They can attach to our skin without us even realizing. A tick bite isn’t always a cause for panic, but they can carry diseases that make us sick. You should be aware of what to look for when you get bitten by a tick, so you know when to visit a PCP. 

Walk-In Clinic or ER: Which Should You Visit?

We all find ourselves feeling unwell from time to time. Whether it’s an allergic reaction, a virus, or an injury, it is time to be examined by a medical professional. Since we don’t choose or plan to get sick, a standard doctor’s office isn’t always an option to go to. They might be closed or not have any openings available. Additionally, regular doctor’s offices aren’t always equipped to handle our situations, but that’s no reason to worry or put off seeking treatment. 

6 Reasons You Should Have a PCP

Life can be chaotic, especially in the hustle and bustle of the state’s capital. Add in traffic, rush-hour, work, among all life throws at us, and visiting the doctor can seem nearly impossible. PrimeCare is conveniently located in North Little Rock and is open past standard business hours, so there are no excuses to avoid visits concerning your health. A primary care physician, or PCP, knows how to handle a variety of illnesses and health concerns. It’s important that you find a PCP to tend to your needs. Here are six reasons why. 

Staying Well in Sunny Weather

We’ve all heard the phrase “fun in the sun.” There’s no better time to take advantage of long sunny days than in the summertime. But living in Arkansas sometimes makes us want to stay inside all day with the A/C on full blast. That may be a viable option when you’re at work or when you’re trying to avoid the hottest part of the day, but you shouldn’t let the heat keep you or your family from having fun on the weekends! There are plenty of ways to beat the heat by utilizing some of our workplace wellness tips while you’re outside. 

5 Things to Remember When Working in the Rain

As much as we’d like it, most employers don’t call off work on account of a little rain. Some of us work indoors anyway, so we can steer clear of rainy weather aside from the quick sprint to and from our cars. Others spend the majority of their work days outside, rain or shine. No matter where you work and under what weather conditions, there is always a chance for occupational injuries to occur. However, it is probably a little safer to sit inside and work, compared to working outside in what could be potentially hazardous circumstances.

Tips on Managing Your Allergies in the Spring

With spring comes warm weather, blooming flowers, and lots of pollen, meaning one thing. Allergies! Every morning when you go outside, pollen has managed to touch upon every surface. When it rains, it washes into the cracks of the sidewalks, only to appear on everything the very next day. For people who suffer from allergies, relief seems impossible! A PrimeCare PCP, can help you find relief from itchy, watery eyes, dripping noses, and incessant sneezing.
