What to Expect from Your Emergency Room Visit

If you have a severe medical problem, we will provide whatever attention is needed. However, if your condition is not life-threatening, you should be prepared to wait. Even if the waiting room is empty, you may still have to wait if our exam rooms are filled or our doctors are attending a particularly serious case.

We know that emergencies are never expected, and you might not have time to gather items. However, if you are waiting for an ambulance, or in a circumstance where it is safe, it is best practice to bring the following items:

  • Insurance cards
  • A state ID card, such as a driver’s license or passport
  • A list of medications and supplements you are currently taking
  • The name of your primary care physician
  • Credit card

If you are a parent, you may want to bring things for children to do, or comforting objects such as stuffed animals. Additionally, we understand If you are a caregiver, emergency room visits can be particularly nerve-wracking, so our team created a cheat sheet to assist your preparation.

A visit to Urgent Care may be a good option at night and on weekends when your doctor may not be in the office, but your situation is not necessarily a medical emergency. From minor injuries to flu-like symptoms, and other less serious injuries or ailments, our facility is equipped to handle an array of health conditions. At Lompoc Health – North H Center, you can receive lab work, x-rays, and care for comprehensive same-day medical attention.
