Health Sciences North wants residents to be prepared over the holidays for their healthcare needs. If you have a loved one being transferred for treatment always be weary of weather conditions before you head out.

HSN says to ensure your prescriptions are filled before any doctor’s offices close for the holidays so schedule an appointment now if you need to. HSN says always wear proper clothing over the winter and wear proper footwear to avoid slips and falls. Hospitals see a large influx of admitted patients over the holidays and to expect longer wait times in some Northeastern ERs.
