The Emergency Care Process: What to Expect

Triage

Upon arrival in the Emergency Department, you will speak with a nurse about your illness or injury. The first nurse that you encounter is called the triage nurse. The triage nurse records your reason for being at the hospital and other important information about medications you take and your past medical history. This nurse will also check your vital signs and record your heart rate, blood pressure, respiratory rate and temperature. A seriously injured or acutely ill patient will receive treatment before patients with minor illnesses or lesser injuries.

Medical Screening
Any patient who comes to the Emergency Department requesting an examination or treatment for a medical condition will be provided with an appropriate medical screening examination to determine if he/she is suffering from an emergency medical condition. Any patient with an emergency medical condition will be given stabilizing treatment.
