I need medical advice regarding my uninsured injured boyfriend?

So my boyfriend doesn't have a lot of money and was traveling by illegally jumping trains. He was coming to see me from Montana, I live in Utah. He was jumping off the train before it reached the train yard and he broke his ankle and leg as well as I

Answers:

You posting this a while ago, dear. He should be able to qualify for Medi-Caid.

Go directly to an ER or an Urgent Care, and tell them that you need to speak with their social worker first. That should be enough to get you in for it all, as I know that is something that needs looked at quickly. Good luck.

You can set and splint the bone like you were a paramedic. Reach out to his Mom or Dad for help and set an appointment with the Dr. He/she will likely bump you into their list if they know how he is suffering now. And if you just can't make it till then then go to ER - they half to take you money or not - homeless people go to ER and get help surely you can too.

Quickly limped away with all those broken bones.
He is one hell of a cowboy!

nothing.

ERs WILL help, even if he has no money

His leg should be splinted immediately. You can find videos on how to make a splint. They're cheap and easy to make. You basically need pieces of wood and some string or strips of cloth.

He shouldn't move his leg or his ankle for two weeks and he should avoid putting weight on it for four weeks. You can get a cane, a crutch or a walking stick from various pharmacies for cheap. Or you can make one from a regular old branch.

His collar bone you can't do much about. It'll just have to hurt for a few weeks.

Until he's healed, he should totally avoid doing anything strenuous like hopping trains.

He can take ibuprofen or aspirin for pain, just tell him not to combine those with alcohol. (he can still drink when he doesn't take pain medication)

PLEASE READ: If his leg looks deformed, meaning if there's bone sticking out or if it's bent the wrong way or if part of his foot or all of his foot is numb you MUST take him to a doctor and get him a trauma surgeon as there's no way that it'll heal correctly which means he could develop a permanent limp, require an amputation or he could die. If his leg is just swollen, that's okay, you just need time. But if it's deformed, you need surgery.

For long term care, there are free clinics all over the country and there are lots of low cost clinics. I actually went to one myself. Most require that you have a job and that you can prove income. I got myself a very minor surgery that normally costs 900 dollars for about 80 dollars.

This is not an ER issue and an ER can turn away non-emergent uninsured patients. They are only required to treat actual emergencies.

He needs to find a free clinic. The state, county, or city would likely have a list.

The best outcome is to take him to the ER and worry about paying later. If any of those fractures don;t heal right, he might not be able to work as a farm hand anymore.
