Heart Attack or Stroke?

Even if you’re not sure it’s a stroke or heart attack, call 911 — don’t drive. Fast action can save your life or someone else’s. When you call 911, paramedics can start providing care and let the Emergency Department know they are on the way.

What Should I Do When I’ve Been a Victim of Domestic Violence?

Everyone deserves relationships that are free from domestic violence. When you’re ready, we are right here to help, 24 hours a day. St. Elizabeth participates in the DOVE Program (Developing Options for Violent Emergencies). The DOVE Program serves victims of physical and sexual assault, domestic violence and elder abuse. DOVE staff and volunteers provide support and invaluable information about resources available to them. They accompany victims during their stay in the emergency department, a time when the victim is at her/his most vulnerable, feeling alone, frightened, ashamed and unsure of what has happened. They will help her/him to cope with the violence and decide what are the next steps.
