What to do in an emergency

Emergencies can come in many forms, from a broken arm to a bad stomach flu, and they are not always obvious. You may even find yourself worrying about going to an ER and finding out your emergency was not really an emergency. But in that moment, making the decision to call 911 or go to an ER could save your life.

If your symptoms are related to a potential heart attack or stroke, call 911–even if there is someone to drive you to the ER.

Our emergency room medical technicians can begin assessing your condition over the phone and can provide better treatment on the way to the ER.

But, if you are experiencing an emergency, do not try to drive yourself to the ER. Your condition could cause you to get in an accident, which could worsen your situation or create an emergency for someone else. Just as important, an ambulance will not get stuck in traffic.

Emergency care at HCA Houston Healthcare

Emergency care is the treatment of emergent medical conditions. It is generally performed in an emergency room, but can also refer to treatment in an ambulance. Emergency medicine physicians may treat patients with injuries or infections, in addition to life-threatening conditions.
