What should you do to avoid a trip to the Emergency Department?

Before an emergency:

  • Find a family doctor before there is an emergency. CareFinders can help. Call 1-866-608-FIND (3463) for a physician referral
  • Learn the signs of chronic illnesses such as hypertension (high blood pressure), diabetes, asthma, heart disease, and stroke. If you know you suffer from any of these diseases or if you are at risk take the necessary measures to control the symptoms as much as possible

If you're not sure your symptoms warrant a visit to the Emergency Department:

  • Call your family doctor and ask for the doctor on call. Explain your symptoms
  • Call your insurance provider. Many insurance companies offer toll-free numbers answered by Registered Nurses who can help guide you
  • Go to an Emergency Department or Urgent Care Center 

You can also save yourself a trip to the Emergency Department by avoiding possible injury:

  • Wear your seatbelt
  • Avoid alcohol and drug use, especially when driving and doing other activities
  • Be aware of possible dangers around you
  • Get regular physical exams
  • Make sure your immunization record is updated
  • Eat right and exercise
  • Avoid substance abuse and smoking
