Observe National Safety Month With 3 Signs You Need Emergency Room Help, Mill City, Oregon

June is National Safety Month, and the professionals at Santiam Hospital want to make Oregon residents aware of certain medical issues that require immediate medical attention. Created by the National Safety Council, this month brings awareness to preventing injuries, illnesses, and death. Knowing which medical symptoms warrant a trip to the emergency room could save your life.

To help residents in the Mid-Willamette Valley area of Oregon stay informed, the caring staff at Santiam Hospital has compiled a list of warning signs you should not ignore. If you’re experiencing any of the following conditions, you should head to the emergency room as soon as possible:

  • Severe Pain: If you have inexplicable severe pain anywhere on your body, seek specialized care from emergency room personnel. Acute abdominal, chest, and head pains could be indicative of internal issues such as appendicitis, cardiac arrest, or other potentially fatal conditions. The faster you seek medical assistance, the better your odds are for recovery.

  • Extremely High Fever: Typically, adults can withstand a fever of 103° F for short periods of time, but in many cases, you should not risk it. Any time a fever does not go down with the help of medicine or is accompanied by a headache or stiff neck, you should head to the emergency room.
  • Loss Of Motor Skills: If you are suddenly unable to walk, speak, see, or move, have someone take you to the emergency room or call 911. Likewise, if you are experiencing sudden confusion, dizziness, or notice drooping on one side of your body, seek immediate medical attention.
