- When to Head to the Closest Emergency Room
How to Identify an Emergency and Visit the Closest ER
In an emergency, every second counts. But when you’re experiencing intense pain, difficulty breathing, or other serious medical issues, it can be hard to think clearly. That’s why it’s always best to err on the side of caution and go to the nearest emergency room. When you're having a medical emergency, call 911 so our paramedics can provide immediate help and bring you to our 24-hour ER. We've been recognized by the Georgia Region I EMS for outstanding first-responder services, which means we combine a high level of emergency medical care with a spotless track record and a focus on saving and improving lives.
Reasons for going to your closest ER include (but are not limited to):
- Complicated Fractures
- Deep Wounds
- Extreme Difficulty Breathing
- Head Injury
- Severe Allergic Reactions
- Severe Burns
- Suspected Heart Attack
- Suspected Stroke
- Vomiting or Coughing Up Blood
You deserve the fastest, most-experienced, and most-dependable emergency medical treatments. Count on us. We will always do everything in our power to help bring you relief and healing.
What to Expect When You Visit AdventHealth Gordon ER
Emergencies can be confusing. You'll probably have many questions about what's happening and why. If you don’t understand something, don’t hesitate to ask. And if you have a concern, please voice it. We’ll have some questions for you, too — because we need all the facts to give you safe, effective treatment. To start off, we’ll ask for basic things like your medical history and the reason for your visit.
We want to bring you relief as quickly as possible, so when you come to the ER at AdventHealth Gordon, formerly Gordon Hospital, we’ll have a nurse check your vital signs, then our specialized emergency room medical team will decide on the best way to care for you. If appropriate, we’ll help you fill out a registration form and discuss how we can help bring you healing. To bring you care faster, we offer bedside registration when appropriate.
It never hurts to be prepared, and you may want to consider keeping an information card in your wallet or purse. Some helpful information includes the name and number of your primary care physician, a list of medications and drug allergies, and advance directives like your health care proxy or the name of your power of attorney. The more we know, the better we can care for you.
- After Your Emergency Room Visit
Sometimes you need more care to fully heal than a single visit to our Gordon County ER can provide. If you need further assistance after your emergency room visit, we’re happy to arrange for follow-up care, prescription fulfillment, physical therapy, or anything else you may need. If you live in Northwest Georgia, we can connect you with physicians and services that are close by to make your treatment easier. We even have a helicopter pad and ambulances on standby so we can quickly transfer you to another facility, if necessary. We’re dedicated to bringing health in body, mind, and spirit to all our Gordon County neighbors. If you need anything else, simply ask.
