When you arrive for treatment at the Emergency Department, your condition is evaluated by a nurse.
The Emergency Department physician may order tests necessary
to diagnose your condition (laboratory, X-rays, etc.), and if you need
specialty treatment, one of our consulting specialists will be called.
Please be prepared to provide pertinent information about your medical history, including:
- medicines you are taking,
- and a summary of your past illnesses, injuries and surgeries.
This information allows our medical team to give you appropriate treatment.
