What to expect?
When visiting an emergency room, you’ll notice that the process is a bit different than what you would experience in your doctor’s office. While in our emergency department, here’s what you can expect:
A Triage nurse will assess you upon your arrival and evaluate your chief complaint and vital signs. Your priority of treatment is based on the severity of your illness, as determined by the trauma nurse. You will be seen in order of arrival time, unless you are determined to be seriously ill or unstable. Those patients determined to be emergency will be taken to the treatment area immediately.
The registration clerk will obtain information for your medical record, including billing information. The clerk will also obtain authorization for treatment from your insurance company. All patients will be medically screened, evaluated and stabilized regardless of insurance or ability to pay.
