How to get to hospital – injury lawyers in Westerham
In some cases you may need to get to the hospital quickly but find that an ambulance is not available immediately. Hospitals try to ensure that there are enough ambulances and drivers available at any one time to serve the area that they are in, but there will always be times that are busier than others, and this can lead to a gap between times that ambulances are available.
If you need to get to hospital and there is a wait for ambulances, then you will have to try to make it to the hospital under your own steam, as quickly as possible. Here are some ways in which you can get to the hospital as soon as possible.
- Assess whether you need to get to hospital immediately. In some cases it is best to try to get to the hospital as quickly as possible, as waiting for an ambulance could actually be more dangerous than making your own way there. If you are bleeding severely, in labour, suspect that you have been poisoned or are having difficulty breathing, find any way possible to get to the hospital immediately.
- Choose a vehicle and plan your route. Quickly find out who is most able to drive to the hospital and can get there as quickly as possible. You may not have long but look for a route to the hospital which will get you there quickly and avoid traffic.
- Call the hospital in advance. Even if you are not arriving in an ambulance it is helpful to call ahead and let the hospital know what you are dealing with and what to expect. That way a team can be in place to get you the treatment you need as soon as you arrive.
