Who can help me if I’ve been hurt?
If you’ve been hurt or involved in some sort of accident, you may feel very overwhelmed, particularly if you’ve suffered a serious or life threatening injury. The first thing you’ll want to do after an injury is to ensure that you, and everyone else involved, obtains the relevant medical care.
In some instances, the first people to provide you with medical care are paramedics. If your injury is serious or requires lifesaving treatment, paramedics are normally on the scene within just a few minutes and can provide crucial treatment.
Once you’ve obtained treatment at the scene, you will normally be moved to a hospital. Here, doctors can examine you and decide which treatment needs to be administered. If your injury doesn’t qualify as an emergency, you can still obtain treatment at the hospital but you may have to wait to be seen.
In some cases, you may only need a short stay in hospital or you could even be allowed to return home on the same day. However, more complex injuries may require long term treatment so you may find that you need to stay in hospital for weeks or even months.
When you are discharged from hospital, however, you aren’t on your own. It’s likely that you’ll still have outpatient appointments to attend and you may even have help at home from healthcare professionals. If you feel that you’re struggling to cope with your injuries emotionally or that you’re still in shock, you may be offered specialist counselling or treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder so there will be plenty of people around to help you in the week and months after your injury occurred.
