What to Bring to the ER
In order to ease your visit to the ER, make sure to bring the following items for yourself or your loved ones:
- Forms of identification
- Insurance card or information
- Name and contact information of your primary physician
- List of current prescriptions and over-the-counter medications, as well as vitamins or supplements
- List of allergies, health conditions, previous surgeries, and family health history
In the ER, patients are treated based on the severity of their condition. Those who may arrive first may not necessarily be treated first.
In the event of a life-threatening condition, call 911 immediately. Paramedics and emergency medical technicians will provide care in the field and bring you or your loved one safely and quickly to the Emergency Room by ambulance. Calling helps our ER team prepare for your arrival and start life-saving treatment more quickly.
Under federal law, every patient has the right to be evaluated and stabilized in the ER regardless of condition or proof of insurance.
You have the right to understand any procedures and know the risks. You may be required to sign forms indicating your consent for treatment.
