Nurse Health Line
There are hundreds of reasons to call the Humboldt General Hospital Nurse
Health Line, but the best one is peace of mind.
If you have a medical problem or question, you now have the option to speak
to a registered nurse 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Humboldt General Hospital has launched the Nurse Health Line in partnership
with REMSA, the Regional Emergency Medical Services Authority.
The free service improves access to care for individuals and families in
Humboldt County, Nevada. Registered nurses are available to provide assessment,
care recommendations and/or referrals to appropriate health care or community
services, unless more appropriate care is available out of area.
Please call the Nurse Health Line for:
Fevers, colds, flu, strains, allergies, bug bites, earaches and minor burns
-- these are just a few of the reasons to call the HGH Nurse Health Line.
This non-emergency service is available to all north-central Nevada residents
free of charge regardless of insurance status. You can even call while
traveling in other parts of Nevada and California.
Nurse Health Line nurses will recommend a level of care including seeking
immediate care through the 9-1-1 system, visiting a clinic location, or
staying at home with self-care instructions.
However, you should still call 9-1-1 for emergencies such as chest pain,
severe burns, seizures, severe allergic reaction, sudden loss of consciousness,
weakness on one side or trauma.
The nurses can help you:
- By asking a series of questions about your symptoms to assess the level
of care needed.
- Decide if you should be seen by a medical provider right away, if you can
wait a few days, or if you can provide self-care.
- Reach your medical provider or suggest other choices like urgent cares
- Find other community resources to help you such as clinics, community agencies
or assistance programs.
