Urgent Care or ER: How to Identify an Emergency
In an emergency, it’s natural to feel shaken. For Flagler County residents, our help is nearby. When you see or experience any symptoms of a medical emergency, such as sudden pain, trouble breathing, or severe burns, call 911 immediately to visit the closest emergency room. Typical situations that need emergency medical treatment include:
- Complicated Fractures
- Deep Wounds
- Extreme Difficulty Breathing
- Major Head Injury
- Severe Allergic Reactions
- Severe Burns
- Suspected Heart Attack
- Suspected Stroke
- Vomiting or Coughing Up Blood
Chances are good you'll never need emergency services, but if you do, AdventHealth Palm Coast, formerly Florida Hospital Flagler, serves the Palm Coast area with round-the-clock care and a highly trained team of ER specialists to help heal your body, ease your mind, and lift your spirit. We’re also a designated stroke center, which means you can trust us to provide the best care available for stroke.
What to Expect When You Visit the ER
Emergency situations really rock your sense of security and stability. That's why our compassionate and experienced Palm Coast ER team will take care to answer all your questions and give you a clear sense of what's happening. We know that you heal best when you feel properly informed and supported. We need information, too, because the more we know, the better we can serve you. We’ll start with the basics — your name, birth date, medical history, and the reason for your visit. We’ll also take your vital signs. Then we’ll determine how best to proceed.
Our 24-hour emergency room operates through a process known as triage, which means we prioritize care for patients in critical condition. This may mean earlier treatment for a later-arriving patient — such as someone suffering from a heart attack or stroke. We do all we can to ease emergency room wait times and get you the care you need, fast.
To help streamline your Emergency Care process, you may want to consider keeping certain information in your purse or wallet at all times. Include information like the name of your primary care physician, your insurance card, a list of your medications and drug allergies, and any advance directives (like health care proxy or power of attorney). This can help us to provide you with faster, better care.
