If you think you may be experiencing a life-threatening emergency such
as a heart attack or stroke, please call 911.
Do you know the early signs of a heart attack?
When an unexpected health emergency occurs, you can count on the care providers
in the Coshocton Regional Medical Center Emergency Room (ER) to help.
Our ER is staffed 24-hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week, with physicians and nurses
specially trained in emergency care. Our ER staff is skilled to effectively
evaluate your condition, manage the appropriate tests including X-rays,
CT scans and laboratory testing, and to decide on the appropriate course
of treatment. Depending upon the nature of your illness or injury, the
emergency physician may choose to:
- Admit you to the hospital inpatient unit for surgery or further treatment
- Provide the necessary treatment in the ER and release you to your home
for rest and care
- Administer medical care to prepare you for transport to a trauma center
for such issues as severe traumatic injuries, or heart attack or heart
failure requiring interventional care. Our ER physicians will determine
if transport for additional care is necessary, and will provide the initial
care designed to help ensure a positive outcome.
- In the event of a suspected stroke, our ER staff will use a rapid online
visual connection between the ER physician and the Ohio State University
Medical Center’s board certified vascular neurologists. The bedside
technology allows the neurologist to speak directly with the ER physician
and the patient, complete a visual assessment, and review CT scan and
laboratory results. This important networking tool provides us with real-time
access to the same expertise and protocols available at a tertiary care center.
At Coshocton Regional Medical Center, our patients deserve the benefits
of professionally trained, compassionate and experienced emergency physicians
and nurses equipped with the highest levels of diagnostic technology ...
and that’s the service we deliver. If your recovery requires transport
to a medical center, we will work with the receiving hospital staff to
get you quickly and safely to the next level of care.
