People get sick. People get injured. When life happens, what should you do?
Sometimes illnesses and injuries are life or limb threatening. Things like heart attacks, strokes, severe asthma, broken bones, deep lacerations, severe pain, bleeding, worsening headaches, gunshot wounds, seizures, moderate to severe dehydration and fever in unimmunized children or fever in very young babies can be very serious. These should be assessed and treated in an Emergency Room.
But what should you do when you know that it’s not an emergency, but it needs to be addressed?
Most of life’s unexpected illnesses or injuries do not pose an immediate threat to life or limb, and dealing with them does not require the resources of an Emergency Room. Things like minor cuts, burns, abrasions, rashes, localized infections of the skin, sore throats, sore ears, fever in immunized children over 3 months, minor fractures and sprains, mild dehydration and colds and flus are all things that can be treated without having to go to an Emergency Room.
