MIDLAND - Not sure if you need to go to the emergency room?
Then just call a nurse.
Midland Memorial has a new phone number that lets you ask an expert.
It's free of charge.
A nurse will ask some questions and let you know the best place to get treatment.
The idea is to cut down on non-emergency visits at the E-R, which frees up doctors for real emergencies.
It also benefits patients by preventing an expensive trip there.
