Emergency Care

If you think you may be experiencing a medical emergency, immediately call your doctor or 911.

What to Expect In the 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. You will be seen in the order of arrival time, unless you are determined to be seriously ill or unstable. 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. The registration clerk will obtain authorization for treatment from your insurance company. Your being seen and treated by the emergency department physician will not be delayed by the registration process or insurance verification. All patients will be medically screened, evaluated and stabilized regardless of insurance or ability to pay.
