Dr. Megan Ranney:
So, the primary and largest factor is, we’re there 24/7/365.
I actually need of us to attempt to deal with themselves at house, to name their main care doctor if they’ve one. However if you’re unsure, that is what we’re there for. I’ll say, we noticed elevated charges of dying at house as a result of folks have been so scared to come back to the E.R. within the worst of the COVID pandemic. So I do not need to dissuade folks from looking for care.
That mentioned, if you’ll be able to eat and drink, in case you’re in a position to get your fever down with ibuprofen or Tylenol, in case you’re in a position to stand up and stroll round, even in case you’re a bit achy or drained, you are in all probability OK to remain house.
However in case you’re feeling actually lightheaded while you get up, if you cannot preserve fluids down, in case you aren’t pondering the way in which that you simply usually do, these would all be issues that may make me need you to come back in and see me.
