Virtual Healing is a highly trusted expert nurse advice line for people who have healthcare questions about a variety of topics. At Virtual Healing, our expert nurses have the training and the experience that's needed to assist people in identifying potential health threats and complications before they ever occur. Of course, we have a lot of callers who reach out to Virtual Healing for educational resources about living with specific illnesses and injuries, which is also fine. Our service truly is a lifesaver for many, figuratively speaking of course.
Should I Call a Nurse Line or Go to the ER?
While Virtual Healing does not replace your physician's advice, a call to our expert nurse advice line could save you an unneeded trip to the Emergency Room. On the other hand, we might advise you to go to the Emergency Room if you have symptoms that might be indicative of something serious. The point is that a phone call to Virtual Healing can help you make the right healthcare decision for your situation.
When to Call Our Expert Nurse Line
At Virtual Healing, we have compiled more than 100 health issues, meaning that we have received calls regarding more than 100 different health questions. Our nurses are licensed in all 50 states and are fully qualified to provide you with expert advice. Just give us a call and put our knowledge to the test.
Also, please note that patients aren't our only callers. Virtual Healing is also an expert nurse advice line for other healthcare providers. Virtual Healing is a resource for everyone who is involved in the care of a person with SCI or TBI. This can include care managers, home aides, physical therapists, physicians, and other medical professionals. It's better to get the expert advice you need than to guess or provide healthcare with an incomplete picture.
When Should I Call a Nurse Line?
If you are not sure whether or not you need to go to the doctor's office or to the ER
For non-emergency medical questions
If you are experiencing changes in yourself, a patient, or a client and wonder if it's normal
You have specific questions about a specific injury, illness, or disorder
It is important to note that our expert nurse advice line exists not to replace your doctor's orders or provide care for an emergency situation. We can help with a wide range of issues and under a wide range of circumstances, but we have very strict laws governing what we can and can't do. If you or someone else is experiencing an emergency at the time you call us, we will have to advise you to hang up and call 911 or visit your local ER ASAP.
