Potential Emergency Situations and Conditions
Many nontraumatic situations or conditions may occur and need to be handled properly. Listed in the directory below are some, for which we have provided a brief overview.
Sports-Related Injuries

Most sports injuries are due to either trauma or overuse of muscles or joints. The majority are caused by minor trauma involving muscles, ligaments, tendons, or bones.

When to Call for Help

Anytime you are not comfortable with a medical situation, call 911 (or your local emergency number), go to your nearest emergency room, or call your family physician.

Emergency Information Form

In an emergency, it is easy to "forget" even the most well-known information. That is why it is crucial for you to complete the information in this form for each member of your household. 

Child Health Emergencies

Having a very sick or severely injured child is a parent’s worst nightmare. If it happened to your child, would you know the best way to go about getting treatment? Knowing when to call an ambulance is important.

Emergency Care: When is it the Right Choice

If you're sick or hurt and want help quickly, it may seem like a good idea to go to the emergency room (ER) for care. You may think of the ER as a source of the most immediate medical attention, but if your situation is not a real emergency, this isn't true.

How to Respond to an Eye Injury

If you suffer a serious eye injury, what you don't do immediately afterward may help more than what you do.


Many poisonous substances can potentially turn fatal if inhaled, digested, or absorbed by the body. 

About Our ER

Bayfront Health Brooksville’s emergency department team is ready to assist you in emergency situations.

Our emergency department (ED) offers 24-hour emergency services and is staffed by medical professionals with experience in emergency medicine. Because patients with the greatest need must receive immediate care, all patients are first seen by a registered nurse who assesses and prioritizes patients on the basis of need, not on the order of arrival.

Our doctors specialize in emergency medicine, caring for patients with acute illnesses or injuries which require immediate medical attention. Once the emergency situation is resolved, we recommend you follow up with your primary care doctor to reassess your overall health. A primary care doctor enhances your overall long-term health by managing your care over an extended period of time called continuity of care. If non-urgent conditions are treated routinely in the ED, your primary care doctor may not have all the necessary information to ensure your continuity of care.
