What We Do

UsagiMed has four primary foci:

Walk-In Clinic

UsagiMed provides non-emergent services to approximately 6,500 people via our walk-in, self-serve clinic.  Patients may, on their own recognizance, pick up and self-apply various over-the-counter medications, bandages, and other basic care items. This level of care is an excellent way for any convention to show they care about their guests and attendees.  This allows people with minor aches, pains, and blisters to address their own problems without having to go offsite to a pharmacy or pay exorbitant prices in the local gift shop.  

The clinic is supervised by medical personnel to provide an opportunity to discuss and assess patients if needed, and to ensure  smooth operation, collection of paperwork etc.  UsagiMed supplies and stocks all the over-the-counter medications and supplies necessary for the event.  

Emergency Medical Response

UsagiMed can provide as many as 8 response teams, staffed by EMTs or higher, who respond to radio calls and attend to more acute patients anywhere in the convention space.

Our knowledge and experience as more advanced providers allows us to know when to call for help early, and how best to support a patient until EMS arrives. We like to introduce ourselves to local EMS and facility management before the show, so that we can work together most efficiently, providing the best possible and most timely care.

Master The Disaster

No one wants to think about the bad things that could happen during one’s con. But disaster planning is the prudent thing to do. Would your team know how to help your guests with a natural disaster? An active shooter?

UsagiMed personnel have a strong academic background in disaster preparedness.  We will work hand in glove with your staff to develop your disaster plan, and to get everyone trained and ready. 

Train The Trainers

Is your staff always on the “same page?” Would they uniformly know what to do when [insert problem here] happens? UsagiMed can quickly and easily help your crew improve their operations with fun and informative training in your convention’s policies, radio use, CPR, and disaster readiness, among other topics. It always makes sense to get everyone on the same page. Getting your staff energized and professionally ready to serve your attendees is a great way to set your con culture apart from everyone else’s.

We also provide public health awareness about important issues like alcohol consumption, safe-sex, smoking cessation, flu vaccination, and hand-washing.
