Get the care you need quickly and safely.
If you or a loved one experience a health crisis, our emergency-room team is here for you 24 hours a day, seven days a week. At East Los Angeles Doctors Hospital, we strive to provide family-like care to all those in our community. We actively fulfill this goal by treating each person with compassion, dignity, and respect as if they were our own family.
When To Seek Emergency Care
There are several medical conditions that are considered emergencies regardless of COVID-19 because they can require rapid or advanced treatments, such as surgery that are only available in a hospital setting.
Some symptoms that are best evaluated in an emergency department include:
- Chest pain or difficulty breathing
- Weakness/numbness on one side
- Slurred speech
- Fainting/change in mental state
- Serious burns
- Head or eye injury
- Broken bones and dislocated joints
- Fever with a rash
- Severe cuts that may require stitches
- Facial lacerations
- Severe cold or flu symptoms
- Vaginal bleeding with pregnancy
If you decide to seek emergency care, you will be screened for COVID-19 before you are allowed into the facility to better identify and isolate those with the virus.
Please dial 911 and/or visit your nearest Emergency Room if you or a loved one is experiencing an emergency.
Don’t Wait To Get The Care You Need
Let us take care of you. Patients who avoid medical care for routine or highly treatable issues could encounter complicated or even life-threatening situations. Don’t let fear of exposure to COVID-19 keep you from getting the care you need. Our emergency room remains open, and we have implemented many safety measures to keep our patients and caregivers safe.
Additional Measures We Are Taking:
- Restricting visitors. Read our visitor restrictions and call our main line for the most-up-to-date visitor information.
- Masking patients with signs of virus and implementing isolation and COVID-19 testing.
- Enhancing hospital sanitation efforts by increasing the number of thorough cleanings.
- Ensuring hand sanitizer is readily available throughout the hospital.
- Closely monitoring the advice and guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).
