What to Expect

Upon arrival to the Emergency Room Department, the patient must register and will then be evaluated by one of our trained Triage Registered Nurses to determine the level of medical emergency. The triage assessment includes reviewing the complaint, vital signs, medication taken, and past medical history. This process allows us to keep every patient’s wait time as short as possible as well as provide appropriate care to all patients based on their level of emergency.
