The 7 Biggest Issues ER Doctors See The Most During The Summer


  1. Heat-related illness

During summer months, people often show up at the doctor with a heat-related condition, from mild dehydration to severe heatstroke, said Dawne Kort, an emergency medicine doctor and attending physician at CityMD Urgent Care Walk-In Medical Clinic.  Fewer than 1,000 Americans die each year due to heat-related illness, according the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But plenty more experience the more mild symptoms of too much sun exposure, which include nausea, dizziness, headaches and confusion.  “Be mindful of the temperature, stay hydrated and avoid being outside for prolonged periods of time if the temperature is high ― especially during the hottest time of the day,” Kort told HuffPost, noting that the warmest hours are usually between 2 and 4 p.m.

  1. Swimming injuries and drowning

As the temperatures rise, many people will head out for water-related activities.  “We see a fair amount of swimming-related [injuries],” McStay told HuffPost. “Trauma related to jumping into a body of water, small children who are not being supervised, boating injuries.”  Joseph Perno, a pediatric emergency medicine physician and vice president of medical affairs at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg, Florida, said these water-related dangers definitely increase when the weather gets warm.  “We see a big spike in drowning,” Perno told HuffPost. “When you have a lot of adults together, you’d think there would be more people watching the kids but what happens is people are distracted: Talking, drinking, partying, having fun and no one is watching the kids.”  Drowning is the second most common cause of death by unintentional injury, behind car accidents, among children ages 1-4 years-old, according to the CDC. Children are also more likely to drown in a swimming pool than anywhere else.  It’s so easy for a child to fall into water without someone realizing, Perno said. If you’re having a pool party, rotate having a designated adult to supervise water activities, he suggests.

  1. Burns and cuts

There are numerous hospital visits for burns associated with grilling and camp fires, as well as cuts from kitchen knives, according to McStay. Children may try to touch the fires and adults make the common mistake of squirting lighter fluid onto hot coals. Be safe about it: Apply lighter fluid to coals when they aren’t lit, letting the fluid soak in, McStay suggested.

  1. Food poisoning and gastroenteritis

Gastrointestinal issues frequently bring people to the emergency room during warmer months, according to Kort. In fact, food-borne illnesses peak in the summer months, since hot temperatures and humid conditions provide the optimum breeding ground for bacteria to multiply rapidly, according to the U.S Department of Agriculture.  “It’s commonly seen after a summer barbecue, where the food has not been properly cooked or may have been left out in the heat. Or when fruits and vegetables have not been washed properly,” Kort said.  Be especially wary of food that’s been sitting out in the sun all day and wash your hands properly before eating, Kort advised.

  1. Sports injuries

Sports-related injuries from playing frisbee, football and outdoor activities are also a bigger issue.  Sprained wrists, twisted ankles and broken bones are common sights in urgent care clinics and emergency rooms between spring and summer, according to the experts.  Treatment for these injuries typically requires a little home care, Kort said. Rest the body, ice the injury, compress the body part and elevate the injured area. But if something feels seriously wrong or keeps getting worse, head to the doctor as soon as possible.

  1. Skin irritations and insect bites

With long days spent outdoors, it’s common to see irritations from wild plants like poison ivy, sumac and oak. Insect and tick bites are also common and, in some cases of infection, may require an antibiotic, Kort said.  Keep an eye on any bumps or swelling that does not go away or grows in size. And learn some expert-backed tips to keep yourself safe from ticks and mosquitoes.

  1. Sunburns

While most sunburns don’t require a trip to the hospital, some do. Go to the doctor if your sunburn results in blistering or is accompanied by nausea, confusion, headache, extreme pain or chills. You should also head to the doctor if at-home remedies such as applying aloe vera or taking a pain reliever like ibuprofen does not help after a couple of days.  But even if you can take care of your burn at home, it’s an uncomfortable mishap that’s easy to avoid. Practice good sun protection habits for yourself and especially watch out for children you’re supervising, since they are unlikely to remember to reapply lotion.  “Having a sunburn is uncomfortable and painful,” McStay said. “And the chronic risk of sun exposure and skin cancer is something to think about everyday.”  So walk into the long, warm weekend a bit more alert. Better to be safe than sorry.
