What to expect at our emergency room
A triage nurse will assess you upon your arrival and will evaluate your chief complaint and vital signs. Your priority of treatment is based upon the severity of your illness, as determined by the triage nurse. Patients who are determined to be emergent will be taken to the treatment area immediately.
The registration clerk will obtain information for your medical record, including billing information. All patients will be medically screened, evaluated and stabilized regardless of insurance or ability to pay.
If you are stable, you may have to wait for a bed to become available. You will, however, be made as comfortable as possible while you wait and the staff will keep you advised as to the status of your visit.
