broken ribs

what can a person do other than go to a doctor/hospital if they fell on the stair and might have internal bleeding or broken ribs?

Re: broken ribs

I would also suggest you do not move around too much.

If it's really painful, or hurts to breathe, and the pain doesn't seem to be getting much better, get checked out. Be smart.
