- Bring your insurance card, as well as a list of any medications you take, including the doses and phone numbers for the prescribing doctors.
- If you’re in pain, or anticipate pain after your visit, arrange a ride home.

Gun Safety for Children
A basket of free, no-questions-asked gun locks are available to patients, families, team members and visitors in our emergency department. This is part of a system-wide program to reduce gunshot injuries in our community by making locks available in all BJC emergency rooms. Firearm injuries cause more deaths in people ages 1-24 than any other type of injury— including car accidents.
