Common Questions

What should I expect while in the Emergency Waiting Room?
Patients with life-threatening conditions are given top priority. For this reason, you may have to wait while we take care of someone who arrived after you did. The order in which patients will be seen is constantly changing as new patients arrive. 

What happens if I am admitted to the hospital?
If your provider decides to admit you, we will arrange to get a bed for you on one of our nursing units. 

What happens if I am discharged?
Your provider or nurse gives you written discharge instructions and reviews them with you. If you have any questions or concerns, be sure to discuss them with your health care provider.
