What's an Emergency?
It is a health problem that appears suddenly and whose symptoms require immediate treatment. Untreated, it poses a risk to the survival of the individual. Here are some examples: cerebrovascular accident (stroke), myocardial infarction (heart attack), pulmonary embolism, psychological distress or suicidal ideations.
What to do in an emergency situation?
If you or a family member requires an emergency assessment or intervention, CALL 911. Do not wait! It would be unwise or even fatal to wait for your next visit to the clinic.
