IMPORTANT NOTICE:

ER visitation restrictions

Ballad Health is currently allowing 1 designated patient-support person – or visitor – for the duration of each patient’s visit or hospital stay. The patient-support person – or visitor – will only be allowed onsite from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Exceptions may be made in labor and delivery, and emergency departments where one guest is permitted at all times, and during extenuating circumstances or in the case of end-of life-care.

Screenings and face mask requirements

Each visitor will be screened for potential signs of illness and required to wear a cloth face covering, which they need to provide for themselves.

Due to the increased risk of virus transmission, masks with vents and/or valves are not permitted.

These measures are to help contain coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

Please read more about these visitation restrictions.

Emergency conditions we treat

Seek emergency care right away for conditions such as:

  • Bleeding that won’t stop
  • Breathing trouble
  • Broken bones
  • Burns (moderate to severe)
  • Chest pain or pressure that lasts more than a few minutes
  • Choking
  • Confusion, strange behavior or trouble speaking
  • Heat exhaustion
  • Hypothermia (very low body temperature)
  • Passing out
  • Poisoning
  • Severe allergic reactions
  • Traumatic (major) injuries

Minor illness or injury? Consider urgent care.

If you have a small injury or an everyday illness, choose urgent care. You’ll likely get help sooner and pay less than at the emergency department.
