The Emergency Room

Is it safe to wait? When is it NOT safe to wait?

The ER at any hospital is for taking care of people whose life or health may be in danger if they do not get medical care right away. The best care is to have one PCP(primary care physician) who will oversee your care and address your ongoing medical needs. The listing below can help you make an informed decision: however, please keep in mind that if you experience any symptom that you believe to be an emergency, seek immediate medical attention.

Examples of when to go to ER:
Chest pain
Trouble breathing
Bad burns
Uncontrollable bleeding                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             
Examples of ER misuses:
