Some would argue that the ER isn’t the right place to deal with people’s personal problems. But even now, many of our patients don’t see another doctor. These ER visits give us a chance to help them regain their health and also put them on the way toward addressing the underlying issues that affect their well-being.
Sometime we’re able to connect patients with people who can help them find safe housing, affordable medications and nutritious food. Often we’re able to identify those at risk for abuse and self-harm.
