What to expect in the ER
Upon check-in at the reception desk, the triage nurse will ask the patient about symptoms and medical history to determine the severity of the medical condition. Triage is a process that helps determine which patients need to be seen sooner because of the severity of their condition. Patients with life-threatening conditions will be treated first. Depending on your condition, you may be:
- Taken immediately to a room for examination and treatment. A doctor, physician assistant or advanced registered nurse practitioner will examine you and plan your care.
- Taken to an area for laboratory tests or X-rays. There may be a waiting period of 30 minutes to two hours until tests or X-ray results are available.
- Asked to take a seat in the waiting room until a healthcare provider or the type of room appropriate for your condition is available.
