Our Emergency Department aims to provide the best and fastest care to every patient who comes through the door. Some patients may have abnormal vital signs or medical conditions that put them at higher risk than others, so sometimes patients will be evaluated “out of order” in order to maximize safety for every patient. This is the triage process, and we continually re-evaluate our patients to make sure that the sickest people receive prompt care. Please be sure to tell a member of your team if you are feeling worse at any time.

Please contact your insurance company to inquire about coverage for follow up care.

Emergency Department are the best place for treating life-threatening conditions. However, for non-life-threatening conditions, urgent care centers might fit your needs.

Acute and Urgent are areas of the Emergency Department where patients who require monitoring (of oxygen levels and heart activity) are typically cared for. In addition to the bays in these areas, there are several dedicated hallway stretcher areas which are used for suitable patients.

The emergency physicians are trained specialists. If you have a question about your care, you should discuss it with the nurse and physician caring for you.

ED wait times depend on a variety of factors, including severity of medical condition, and number of patients currently in the Emergency Department.  In order to provide appropriate prompt care, patients are seen by order of severity of their condition.

The Evaluation area of the Emergency Department is where many patients will see an Attending Physician (the doctor responsible for your care) and his/her team. When you are in the Evaluation area, your care has begun; your care will likely continue in another area of the ED as determined by your team.

Fast-Track is an area of the Emergency Department where you may be seen with medical concerns which usually can be diagnosed and treated so that you can go home. You may be brought into an exam room and then asked to return to the waiting area while tests or other parts of your workup are pending. This is to allow us to treat as many patients as quickly and safely as possible.

The Pediatrics area of the Emergency Department takes care of children and young adults with a variety of clinical concerns. Physicians and Nurses in Pediatrics have special training to work with children, and Child Life Specialists are available to help our youngest patients relax while visiting the Emergency Department. Pediatric patients may be cared for in other areas of the ED as determined by the care team.

During triage, a nurse will conduct a brief medical history and exam to determine the severity of your condition.

Every patient’s workup is different based on why she or he is in the ED. You may require lab tests (blood draw or urine sample), x-rays or CT scans (pictures of the inside of your body), or other tests. Some patients may not require any tests during their Emergency Department visit. Your healthcare team will explain what tests you will need and can answer any questions you may have.

In order to ensure your safety, multiple members of the team may ask you to confirm your identity and why you are visiting the Emergency Department at various points during your stay. You may be evaluated by multiple clinicians including Nurses, Physician Assistants, Resident Physicians, Attending Physicians, and Consulting Specialist Physicians and each may ask you to repeat important information relevant to your condition in order to provide you the safest and best possible care.

The emergency department conducts research in a variety of areas. Patients are asked for their permission before we place them in a research protocol.

Sometimes your condition may require additional care in the hospital and you will be admitted or observed in the hospital. At that point your care may continue with a different healthcare team.

Once the decision has been made, your healthcare team will talk to you about where in the hospital you will go and what to expect. Sometimes there may be a very long wait for a bed to become available. In that case, your care will continue in the Emergency Department until your bed is ready. Depending on why you need to stay and which team will take care of you in the hospital, they may come to meet you while you are still in the Emergency Department and start taking care of you at that time.

Depending on your condition and care plan, your team may speak with you about alternative pathways that may be more convenient for you, including our Home Healthcare Program or transfer to an appropriate facility for further medical care.

Remember that there is always a health care team responsible for your care. If you are ever unsure who that is, just ask.
