When you or a member of your family experience a medical emergency, every minute counts. St. Vincent Health’s emergency room (ER) is minutes from most locations in Lake County and pre-hospital 911 response is provided by our in-house ambulance department.
The ER “door to doctor” time continues to beat statistical norms, at an average of five minutes between arrival and being seen by a provider.
Emergency rooms treat patients based on the severity and urgency of a condition. Some of the most common reasons to seek care at an emergency room are:
- Severe chest pain
- Severe abdominal pain
- Wheezing or shortness of breath
- Severe injury; bone break
- Intestinal bleeding
- High fevers or rash, especially among children
- Vaginal bleeding with pregnancy
- Repeated vomiting
- Severe head or eye injuries
- Allergic reactions
This limited series consists of a four-part conversation between the physicians involved and the director of St Vincent EMS. It is hosted by frequent EMM contributor Dr. Elizabeth Esty.
