Answer #1

I’m not sure what it is, but you can call the hospital or your local clinic and tell them that your father refuses to get medical help and but you are concerned for him. You can ask them for their help through the phone, they might give you first aid advice.

Answer #2

you can contact a doctor without going to the hospital via phone or internet
