Is it the symptoms of short term memory?

My niece collided with another girl in college softball practice. Although she didn't black out she was down for a while. She couldn't remember things that happened an hour earlier. She went to the emergency room but the doctors said she should be okay. Currently she has short term memory for incidents AFTER the collision. Should we take her to a doctor tomorrow?

Sure, I do recommend her to be seen by a Neurolosurgeon. It is very important to assess if there was any damage during the attack. I recently saw this info on a TV program.
