Emergency Care Services
Emergency Services is designed for treatment of acute medical and surgical emergencies and is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by emergency medicine physicians and nurses. For emergency diagnosis, ES is equipped with:
- CT Scans
- Respiratory Services
Emergency Services patients have prioritized care depending on the severity of their symptoms. A triage nurse determines the acuteness of the patient’s problem and coordinates the order for treatment, providing immediate care to critically ill or injured patients and efficient care to those less seriously ill.
The RN staff is Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) and Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) trained.
