Bleeding from nose and throat after head being hit. Need to get checked?

My boyfriend was attempting to do pull ups on a pull up bar. The pull up bar fall off the wall ad hit him twice at the top of the head. He began to bleed from the nose and the throat. The blood flow was mild. He said the blood was thick. This bleeding prosisted for about 5 to 10 minutes and eventually stopped. Also, he did not hit his nose at all. He only hit the top of his head. do you recommend going to a hosptial?

Hi thanks for your question.
Your boyfriend was hit by bar twice on hid head and bled from nose and throat .Though he was not hit on the nose and still bled from nose and throat.This condition needs immediate medical attention to rule out any fracture of skull bone and any bleeding inside the brain.He may need CTscan brain to rule out these two condition as cause of his bleeding..Take him to ER for immediate medical consultation.
Hope this answers your question.
