When to Seek Emergency Care

Don’t wait to get the help you need. There are several medical conditions that are considered emergencies regardless of COVID-19 because they can require rapid or advanced treatments, such as surgery that are only available in a hospital setting.

Some Symptoms Best Evaluated in an Emergency Department Include:

  • Chest pain or difficulty breathing
  • Weakness/numbness on one side
  • Slurred speech
  • Fainting/change in mental state
  • Serious burns
  • Head or eye injury
  • Concussion/confusion
  • Broken bones and dislocated joints
  • Fever with a rash
  • Seizures
  • Severe cuts that may require stitches
  • Facial lacerations
  • Severe cold or flu symptoms
  • Vaginal bleeding with pregnancy

 

Please dial 911 and/or visit your nearest Emergency Room if you or a loved one is experiencing an emergency.

We’re Open and Ready to Care for You

Don’t let fear of exposure to COVID-19 keep you from getting the care you need. Our emergency room remains open, and we have implemented many safety measures to keep our patients and caregivers safe.

Additional Measures We are Taking:

  • Restricting visitors. Read our visitor restrictions and call our main line for the most-up-to-date visitor information.
  • Masking patients with signs of virus and implementing isolation and COVID-19 testing.
  • Enhancing hospital sanitation efforts by increasing the number of thorough cleanings.
  • Ensuring hand sanitizer is readily available throughout the hospital.
  • Closely monitoring the advice and guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).
