Diagnosis at the Emergency Department
Each patient arriving at the Emergency Department is met by a nurse and a member of the registration team. After registration, patients are guided to a treatment area where an Emergency Medicine Program physician evaluates their condition. Some patients may require additional evaluation, such as blood work or imaging studies.
Treatment at the Emergency Department
After the evaluation is complete, the treatment team will discuss the appropriate next step with the patient. This may mean that the patient is discharged home, referred to the clinic, admitted to the hospital, or transferred to another facility.
The Emergency Medicine Program team ensures that patients are provided with all the information they need to follow the recommended treatment plan. Nurses work with each patient to carefully review all medical instructions. They also explain when to return for follow-up care and in what situations the patient should return to the Emergency Department.
To help make the transition home as smooth as possible, pharmacy services are available at the hospital 24 hours a day. The on-site pharmacist can provide clarification on questions about prescription medications to be taken at home.
