You can heal yourself by holding on to the R2 button after selecting the Health Kit using your D-Pad. Healing will let you recover a large portion of your health which can be seen on the lower right side of the screen.

However, using a health kit takes a few seconds, so be sure to wait until you are in a safe area to do it!

    • I’m more of a stealth player so I didn’t enjoy the boss fight in the hospital. One touch and you’re dead, that’s not enjoyable or realistic. Might as well run outside and kick a bear. I’d get the same thing happen, dead. Too much story in this game as well, I feel like it’s hours of videos that takes away from the game play. Just give me the details and move it along. I don’t need to know who’s screwing who.
