Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Frequently asked Questions
1. Who will treat me in the Emergency Department?
The ED's health care team consists mainly of doctors and nurses who are specially trained to treat all types of medical emergencies.
2. Can my family visit me in the treatment area?
Your family members may wait with you in your treatment area. They must stay at your bedside. If the ED becomes full or if a doctor or nurse feels that you need privacy, your family may be asked to return to the waiting area.
In consideration for our critically ill patients, no child age 10 or younger may visit a patient without permission from the charge nurse. Ask to see the charge nurse to make this request.
3. How are my medical needs determined?
To help us assess your medical situation, one of our medical technicians will ask you the reason for your visit and check your vital signs, including temperature, heart rate, respiratory rate, blood pressure, and oxygen saturation. They will also question you about allergies and medications you are currently taking, and the dosage of these. You will also be asked about your past medical and surgical history, as well as that of your family. These are important questions that might indicate a risk of problem areas.
4. I have completed the triage process. What's next?
Please remain in the waiting area until your name is called. We will respond as quickly as possible to your medical need according to the seriousness of injury or illness as compared to other patients waiting to be seen.
Once your name is called, a nurse will escort you to a treatment room.
5. I am in a treatment room. What happens now?
In order to determine life- or limb-threatening illnesses or injuries, or to stabilize such conditions, a trained emergency department physician will perform a medical screening evaluation. This evaluation may include testing or consultation with a specialist. You will also be asked a number of questions — some of our questions may seem repetitive, but this process is necessary to make sure we have uncovered all vital information to determine proper treatment.
6. What happens when I am discharged?
You will be discharged, admitted to the hospital, or transferred to a different hospital. If you are discharged, you will be given instructions on how to care for yourself and given a number to call if you have continued problems. If you do not understand the instructions or have any questions about them - ask! You may be told to follow up with your primary care physician.
You will be responsible for your own transportation home.
