Healthful assistance as near as a phone

Registered nurses are always ready to help a mother decide whether her child can wait until morning to see a doctor. They can provide information on treating a minor illness or injury at home. Or they can provide referrals to community-support resources or support groups when they are needed. All it takes is a toll-free phone call.

What happens when you call?

  • Callers are asked about their health problem.
  • If the symptoms described are serious, the nurse will recommend a visit to the physician, urgent care or the emergency department. In the event of a true emergency, callers will be instructed to call 911 or their local emergency number
  • If the symptoms described are not serious, the nurse can give instructions for care at home. Later, the nurse might call back to make sure the problem is being resolved.

Working with personal care physicians

In addition, a staff of physician specialists at Marshfield Clinic is available at all times for consultations with the nurse.
