Health and Well-Being 11 - Emergency Room
This three-page handout educates people about when to go to the emergency room (ER). It explains that the ER is expensive and should only be used for serious and sudden health problems. It provides examples of the kinds of emergencies for which a trip to the ER or call to 911 is appropriate, and advises people with non-emergencies to call their health plan's 24-hour nurse line for assistance.
