Here is what you can expect upon arrival:
- Our emergency response team will evaluate the urgency and severity of your condition and gather necessary medical information. Your information is immediately entered into our computerized medical record, which allows us to manage your care promptly. You’ll be given an electronic beeper that will light up and buzz when the doctor can see you. Please let us know if your condition changes while you are waiting.
- If you need medical tests, such as blood tests, X-rays or heart tracings, waiting time will be necessary to process the tests and report the results.
- Once the test results are received and treatment is completed, the physician or physician assistant will discuss your condition and make recommendations. You will either be discharged home or admitted to the hospital, depending on your condition.
- If you are going home, the nurse will review your discharge instructions with you. Please feel free to ask any questions regarding your care before you leave. We want to make sure you understand your discharge instructions.
