Health Talk Live: Don't Delay Emergency Care

Fears surrounding COVID-19 have left many people afraid of going to the hospital for emergency care. This is especially concerning in the event of medical emergencies such as heart attack or stroke and during the winter months when people are more likely to suffer injuries due to slips, falls or accidents.

In this segment of TriHealth’s Health Talk Live, Local 12’s Liz Bonis speaks with Brandon Ballhaus, Director of Perioperative Services at TriHealth’s Good Samaritan Hospital. He talks about what hospitals are doing to ensure patient health and safety, the impact of vaccinations for hospital staff, what we have learned over the past year about patient safety, and potential impact on long-term recovery if you delay seeking care.
