When to go to the ER instead of immediate care
If you have a serious condition – stroke, heart attack, severe bleeding, head injury or other major trauma – go straight to the nearest emergency room. Don’t take a chance with anything life-threatening.
The emergency room is the best place for these and other critical conditions:
- Chest pain
- Difficulty breathing
- Severe bleeding or head trauma
- Loss of consciousness
- Sudden loss of vision or blurred vision
- Serious or severe injuries, digit or extremity amputation
- Burns or electrical shock
- Altered mental status
- Vaginal bleeding during pregnancy
- Poison ingestion
- Signs of stroke
