Before You Go

When Should I Go to an Emergency Room?

If you think it’s a life-threatening situation, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room. This could include:

  • Heavy bleeding
  • Seizures
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Extreme pain
  • Unconsciousness
  • Head, neck or back injury
  • Pale, cold, and clammy skin
  • Weak and rapid pulse

If you can’t drive safely or it is an extremely urgent situation, we suggest that you use an ambulance to get to the emergency room.

Which Emergency Room Should I Go To?

If you can contact your doctor, they will advise you. If you can’t reach your doctor and are driving yourself, go to the emergency room that is closest to you. If you’re using an ambulance and do not have a specific preference, they will bring you to an emergency room based on its location, your type of emergency, and other factors.
