We deal with the toughest, most urgent cases in our emergency room. Metairie, LA area residents should always be prepared in the event of an emergency. Follow these guidelines if you or someone you know has been injured.

Responding to an Emergency: Call 911

Stay calm. The first and best thing you can do is to remain calm. Call 911. If someone else is with you, who is not injured, ask that person to call 911.

If you can, have the following information available:

  • The address or location of the injured person
  • A call back number
  • A brief description of the injuries or illness
  • The number of people injured

If the person is injured in a car accident and there is no immediate danger, such as fire, do not move them. Unnecessary movement can cause additional injuries. If the injured person is not breathing, the 911 Operator can walk you through CPR instructions over the phone. Do not hang up until the dispatcher ends the conversation.
