When should I seek emergency care?

We recommend an immediate trip to the emergency room for the following symptoms:
  • Bleeding from wounds that is not controlled despite pressure
  • Chest pain
  • Choking
  • Coma or changes in level of awareness
  • Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
  • Major burns
  • New onset of numbness, tingling, weakness of an extremity
  • New onset of seizures or convulsion
  • Poisoning or taking an overdose of medication
  • Severe injuries, especially those that affect the head, abdomen, neck or back
  • Severe or persistent vomiting or diarrhea
  • Significant amount of bleeding from the vagina, rectum or when vomiting
  • Sudden dizziness, headache or change in vision
  • Sudden severe pain occurring anywhere for any reason, known or unknown
  • Thoughts of suicide or homicide
  • Weakness, fainting, or feeling as if you are going to pass out

We recommend dialing 911 if you have a medical emergency that requires immediate intervention.

When calling 911, speak as calmly and clearly as you can. It is important that you do not delay treatment. Many medical conditions require that you receive treatment within a certain timeframe in order to prevent serious complications. Those time frames may be as short as within 1 hour from the time your symptoms start. Stay on the phone with the 911 operator until the operator tells you that you may hang up.

Be prepared to give the following information to the 911 operator:

  • The problem
  • The location of the victim
  • The victim’s name
  • What happened
  • Your name
The Haskell County Hospital Emergency Care is located at 401 NW 'H' Street, Stigler, OK.

What is a Level IV Trauma Center?

A Level IV trauma center provides the stabilization and treatment of severely injured patients in remote areas where no alternative care is available. To be considered a Level IV trauma center, facilities must provide initial evaluation and assessment of injured patients. Most patients will require transfer to facilities with more resources dedicated to providing optimal care for the injured patient.
