When to Come

Heart Attack or Stroke Call 911 First

Do not drive yourself to the ER.  Always call 911. Life-saving care begins in the ambulance and EMS workers will notify the ER of your condition en route to the hospital.

Don't wait. Come to the ER if you or someone you know is experiencing a medical emergency, such as:

  • Chest pain or stroke symptoms
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Serious injuries or burns
  • Broken bones
  • Knife or gun wound
  • Uncontrolled bleeding
  • Face or eye trauma

What to Bring

  • An accurate list of your medications, including the dosing information
  • A list of medication allergies
  • A responsible adult to drive you home in case you're medicated during treatment
  • A copy of any medical test results or reports if you’ve had testing or radiology studies performed at another facility recently
  • Be sure to inform the staff of your primary care physician and any other providers who should receive reports from your ER visit.

After Being Treated

  • Read and retain your discharge instructions. This document provides important information about your follow-up care.
  • Always talk with your primary care provider or follow-up physician after your ER visit. Some test results will not be available for review during your ER visit. These results should be reviewed with your primary care provider later.
  • If you have any questions or concerns regarding your care, make sure to discuss these with your ER physician prior to discharge. You should leave with a clear care plan.
