Top Emergency Room FAQs, Mill City, Oregon

The emergency room is your go-to medical provider for urgent cases. This includes major medical problems and traumatic injuries. A trip to the ER can be nerve-wracking and knowing what to expect can help you keep your cool. Read on for answers to some common questions about this specialty healthcare facility.

FAQ: All About the Emergency Room

When Is a 911 Call Needed?

Emergency medical services can come to you and take care of your transportation to the emergency room if needed. EMS professionals can also call ahead to the ER and make sure doctors are ready to help upon arrival. Examples of cases that would require a 911 call to arrange this include a potential heart attack or trauma, like a car accident.

What if You Require Specialty Care, Like Surgery?

 

Emergency rooms have a vast professional health care network. If you show up in the ER and it’s determined that you need specialty help, like surgery, they will connect you to the right people. If needed, they can also arrange emergency transportation.

Can Children Be Brought to the Emergency Room?

Yes. Emergency rooms do not distinguish between adult and child care. Regardless of your age, you will be treated.

How Can You Get Info About a Loved One in the ER?

If a friend or family member of yours has been taken to the emergency room, you’ll want to check on them. Ask receptionists on site, not nurses or doctors. Keep in mind that in some cases, health care professionals are legally only permitted to provide information to relatives.

 

4).What’s the Difference Between Urgent Care & Emergency Care?

The emergency room is open 24/7. Urgent care clinics, on the other hand, are not necessarily always available. They may offer hours outside of a regular medical clinic but don’t count on them to be open at three in the morning. Wherever you’re living, you should always know where the nearest emergency room is.
