Help us help you by keeping some things in mind and bringing a few materials with you if you’re taking an unexpected trip to the emergency room:
- Names and dosages of medications you take
- What time you take medications
- Your allergies
- Medical history
- Driver’s license and insurance
What to Expect

After triage, you’ll be asked to register. A staff member will keep you informed as you wait for the next available treatment room.
During treatment, a physician will evaluate your condition. Tests such as IVs, blood or urine samples may be required.
After tests, you will be re-evaluated to determine whether a discharge, admittance, or transfer is necessary.
When you are discharged, you will be given complete after-care instructions. Be sure to follow up with your private physician or the physician to whom you were referred. you are discharged, you will be given complete after-care instructions.
