If for example your girlfriend (or boyfriend) is admitted to the emergency room and isn't able to contact you how do you know that they were hurt? Like if you're at work does the hospital call you or something? Do you have to be their emergency contact or have power of attorney or whatever? Anyone that's been in this type of situation how did you find out? by the way purely hypothetical question. My girlfriend is perfectly fine and texting me right now. I just am worried if something happens im not gonna know what happened or where she is.

They call emergency contact and only if there's an emergency. If she takes herself to emergency, they're not calling anyone.
You'd only find out if she calls you or the emergency contact calls you. And as I said, they only get a call if there is an emergency and she can't for whatever reason sign the forms or provide consent. If she's not old enough that person HAS to be her parent/guardian already.0

The hospital will call you, if you're an emergency contact. If not, you won't know until someone closer to her finds out and lets you know. It's entirely possible you don't find out until your girlfriend herself messages you potentially several days later.0
