Common Causes of ER Visits

Last updated 4 years ago

Everyday thousands of people across the United States come to the ER for medical attention. Both chronic conditions and sudden accidents can warrant a visit to the emergency room, and Largo Medical Center is well-equipped to handle a wide range of emergency situations. So if you or a loved one requires medical help for any of the following conditions, come to our Pinellas County hospital for your healthcare needs. We have two ER’s. Our third Free Standing ER, the Clearwater ER, opens Monday, November 24.

Poison Ingestion

The ingestion of a poisonous substance can cause grave consequences for individuals of all ages. In many cases, the victim may be a small child who swallows a cleaning product or medication left unattended. However, poisonings can also occur when an individual consumes excessive amounts of alcohol or other drugs. Even when the amount of poison consumed is small, to ensure the wellbeing of a friend or family member, seek emergency care as soon as possible.

Spine Pain

Injuries to the spinal cord can be particularly dangerous. Injury to any part of the spinal column could result in complete or partial paralysis. Contact sports in particular can lead to severe spinal problems. Immobilizing the victim and seeking emergency room help are key to survival and recovery in such circumstances.

The emergency room at Largo Medical Center offers quick and capable ER care for individuals of all ages who reside in the greater Pinellas County region. Should you or a family member require our emergency room services, call (727) 470-6826. You can also browse our website to view our complete list of healthcare services.
