When to Call the Nurse Health Line

The nurses will ask several initial medical questions when you call. If the nurse identifies that you have a serious medical problem requiring immediate care, you will be directly transferred to the emergency medical dispatchers, then an ambulance and fire department first responders are sent immediately.

Some medical reasons to call the Nurse Health Line:

  • Cuts/Scrapes
  • Sore Throat
  • Arm or Leg Pain/Injury
  • Minor Burns
  • Constipation
  • Croup
  • Diarrhea
  • Eye Pain/Drainage
  • Mild Headache
  • Muscle Problem
  • Rash
  • Low Fever
  • Sprains/Strains
  • Cough, Cold and Flu Symptoms
  • Earaches or Ear Pain
  • Dental Problems
  • Minor Pain
  • Falls
  • Heartburn
  • Nosebleed
  • Vomiting

The nurses cannot diagnose problems and are not a substitute for care by a primary care doctor, but they can help patients access the right level of care. For callers who don’t speak English, the nurses can still provide medical information via a language line service.
