Medical emergencies, by definition, don't happen on a schedule. But you can still be prepared.

Leslie recently discussed emergency room 101 tips with Russ McCaskey, host of Plugged in to DFW, a CBS talk show in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

For example, do your research on your local emergency rooms and keep in mind that not all hospitals are created equal nor are they all prepared to deal with every type of trauma. 

Also: Even in the urgency of an emergency situation, oftentimes you have the time to pause and get a second opinion. Watch the segment to learn what you need to know before an emergency strikes so that you can help save your life and the lives of those you love.
