When should I visit the ER?
Knowing when you or someone else needs emergency attention can be critical. An emergency is defined as a serious medical condition or symptom caused by an injury or sickness, or mental illness, which arises suddenly and requires immediate care and treatment to avoid death or disability.
Get to the ER immediately if you experience:
- Suspected stroke
- Suspected heart attack
- Complicated fracture
- Deep wound
- Vomiting/coughing up blood
- Major head injury
- Severe allergic reaction
- Extreme difficulty breathing
- Severe burn
Always be prepared for an emergency by keeping the following information on a card along with your insurance card and photo identification.
1. Name & telephone number of your Primary Care Physician
2. A list of your medications, including any drug allergies
3. Advance Directives: Living wills, Do-Not-Resuscitate orders, Power of Attorney, etc.
What to expect during your ER visit
When you first arrive at Emergency Services, you’ll be greeted by a specially-trained Registered Nurse (RN), who will ask your name, date of birth, Social Security Number (for your own personal safety), and the reason for your visit.
The nurse will check your vital signs, including blood pressure, temperature, and heart rate, and evaluate the nature and severity of your condition. This triage process determines the order in which you’ll be seen. People with life-threatening conditions are seen immediately. Those with urgent conditions are seen ahead of non-urgent patients.
Once you’re in the exam room, you’ll be thoroughly examined by a skilled registered nurse and an ER physician, who will decide on the appropriate plant of treatment. The doctor may also send you for additional tests, such as blood tests, CT scan, ultrasound imaging or X-rays.
Your ER physician will communicate your treatment with your primary care physician. To find a skilled primary care physician in your neighborhood, please call (407) 303-DOCS.
