It’s important to share all symptoms with your Emergency Room staff, even the embarrassing ones.   Knowing all symptoms allows your ER Physicians to better diagnose and treat your condition.

If you have allergies, it’s crucial your ER staff knows.  Some medications can cause allergic reactions.  Providing this information will allow your physician to diagnose appropriate medications.

You May Need More Care

Depending on the circumstance, your ER doctor may refer you for additional care.  The goal of an Emergency Room or Emergency Center is to provide treatment to patients who need medical care fast. If follow up medical care is necessary, your nurse will explain this to you during your discharge from the Emergency room.

A successful recovery may require additional medical care. Ensure you follow all discharge instructions you’re provided at the end of your visit.

Don’t Be Afraid To Ask Questions

If your nurse or physician says something you don’t understand or you are unclear on what to do when you leave the ER, ask questions.  Understanding your medical condition and how to treat it is the first step to a healthy recovery.

Sometimes you may not realize you have a question until after you leave. In these situations, call the ER you visited and ask to speak to a nurse or physician about your condition.
