They are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year. We can provide standby services for you or your group during athletic or special events.

What You Can Expect from Emergency Services.

The triage and admission process begins immediately upon arrival at the emergency. Patients with life-threatening conditions are prioritized and attended to immediately. Stabilizing the patient’s condition is our first priority. A triage nurse assesses every patient upon arrival, determines the priority, and initiates appropriate actions. Patients with life-threatening conditions undergo a brief visual triage and are promptly taken to the resuscitation room. Every effort is made to transfer patients to a treatment room as soon as possible.

The average time spent in the emergency department varies depending on whether you will need to be admitted to the hospital. Patients in the waiting area are assessed by the triage staff for their conditions. If the doctor orders laboratory tests or clinical imaging (radiology), the patient's stay in the emergency department may increase. Patients who are discharged from the emergency department are given a follow-up appointment along with discharge instructions. Those who need to be admitted are referred to the admissions department for further processing.
Once triage is completed and the clinical priority has been determined, the patient is assigned to a bed and taken to the relevant area in the emergency department. Meanwhile, one family member or attendant is asked to complete the patient registration process.
