Emergency Services

Care at a hospital emergency room is for medical emergencies only. This includes life-threatening or serious illnesses or injuries. You may have a medical emergency if you’re experiencing:

  • Difficulty breathing and/or shortness of breath
  • Chest or upper stomach pain, or feel pressure in your chest
  • Fainting spells or sudden dizziness or weakness
  • Uncontrolled bleeding
  • Severe vomiting or diarrhea
  • Feelings that you want to hurt yourself or others

If you have a life-threatening emergency, go to San Francisco General Hospital or call 9-1-1.
