Medical emergencies are injuries or sudden (or worsened) illnesses that threaten or could permanently damage your health, or result in a serious medical complication if treatment is delayed. Examples of medical emergencies include seizure, poisoning, sudden pain, chest pain, broken bones, head injury with confusion, loss of consciousness, or shock.
What to do if your emergency requires immediate attention:
Call 911 or go to your nearest hospital or urgent care facility. Emergency Care is appropriate when the absence of immediate medical attention can reasonably be expected to result in placing your health in immediate jeopardy, serious impairment to bodily functions, or other serious medical consequences.
