Emergency Services FAQs
A million things go through your mind when you are confronted with an emergency. Knowing a little bit about our emergency department and what to expect—before you need us—will help. Here are a few of the questions that we get asked most often.
What should I bring to my emergency department visit?
Be sure to bring your medications and dosages and most current medical history, if available. It is also helpful to bring emergency contact information, including medical power of attorney or health care guardianship information, if applicable. After your visit, it is important that you follow up with your primary care doctor, so please know who your primary doctor is, and which physician(s) should receive information from your visit.
What can I expect during my emergency department visit?
When you arrive, please check in at the Emergency Department registration desk and our staff will evaluate you to determine your condition. If your condition is life threatening, you will be seen immediately. You can expect testing and care from board-certified emergency physicians and specially trained registered nurses. If appropriate, you may be referred to a specialist or admitted to the hospital for further care and treatment.
