Our average ER wait times are short, and our team works hard to deliver immediate care to patients with minor and major medical emergencies. Our doctors and support staff work diligently to provide rapid care when you need it most.
What to Expect at Our ER
Upon arrival to the ER, a triage nurse will greet you to go over how you can receive the best possible care in the shortest amount of time. The purpose of triage is to sort and prioritize patients according to medical needs and symptoms presented. The nurse will inquire about any medications you may be taking, allergies you may have and the name of your doctor.
Once the nurse evaluates your medical needs, he or she will:
- Ask about your medical history.
- Take your vital signs: blood pressure, pulse, respiration, and temperature.
- Ask your birth date and/or social security number so that the nurse can pre-register your information into the computer.
- Ask you to sign a consent allowing the emergency department to treat you.
You will receive medical attention according to the seriousness of your symptoms, illness, or injury as determined by the triage nurse. After you are assigned to a room in the emergency department, a nurse and a physician will evaluate you. Registration is completed at the bedside.
