Step 3: Do you know where to go if you need medical attention?
Hola familia! We’re on step 3 already, and that’s understanding where to go if you need medical attention.
There’s basically two main type of situations, emergency and non-emergency. Here are some examples of emergency situations, for example you’re pregnant and your water just broke (stop reading this and go)! You or someone you know had a bad accident, or you need immediate medical attention — that’s what the emergency room is for. An example of non-emergency visits would be needing a physical for work or school. You would instead go to your primary care doctor, or women can go to their gynecologist. Knowing exactly where to go will save you from losing your patience, getting frustrated and waiting in the emergency room when you don’t need to be there.
