Trust our board-certified medical team to deliver the treatment you need right to your home.

After a head injury — even a minor one — you may be experiencing a headache and feel dizzy or sick to your stomach. The last thing you’ll want to do is drive to an urgent care or other health care facility, where you’ll be forced to wait in a crowded, noisy area under bright fluorescent lights. Fortunately, thanks to DispatchHealth’s mobile service, you can receive the treatment you need for conditions that are not life-threatening without having to leave the comfort of your home.

If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to the nearest emergency department.

What are the symptoms of a head injury?

After sustaining a minor head injury, you may experience symptoms including swelling, bruising, a mild headache, dizziness, and nausea. In many cases, these symptoms can be treated by taking over-the-counter pain relievers and applying cold compresses. However, because more severe head injuries can cause concussions and other serious complications, it’s important to keep an eye out for symptoms such as:

  • Balance problems
  • Behavioral changes
  • Blurred vision
  • Confusion
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Grogginess
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Memory issues
  • Seizures
  • Sensitivity to noise and light

While some of these symptoms may occur immediately following a head injury, others could take days or even weeks to appear.

The importance of promptly treating a head injury

It’s important to seek care for a head injury as soon as possible, since prompt diagnosis and treatment can lower the risk of future complications and help ensure a better recovery. DispatchHealth’s team of trained professionals can assess your injuries and determine the best course of treatment — contact us to request service.

  • They brought everything you would see in an emergency room, but the emergency room was our bedroom! They set up an IV. They knew what they were doing. And they were very personable. We never felt rushed. And the insurance covered it all. We didn’t have to pay a dime.

  • I wasn’t sure if I should go to the ER. My doctor recommended DispatchHealth. It’s great for people like me who have COPD and other health issues. They tested my blood, ran COVID and flu tests, and even gave me IV fluids. Before leaving they sent a prescription to my pharmacy.

  • They did the ultrasound right there with my Dad on the bed. Didn’t have to go to the emergency room or anything. And the results went straight to his doctor. Very professional, just seamless. And they were very caring and compassionate.

  • It was wonderful to know that someone would come to the house within a few hours. Every experience we’ve had with them has been excellent. Whenever they leave, they know how grateful we are that they came to our house and helped us.
