EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT

The Emergency Department is staffed with a Registered Nurse 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.  Physicians are on call when not physically present in the building and are notified of patient arrival to the Emergency Department by the nurse.  The Emergency Department does not function on a first come, first serve basis.  Patients are assessed and “triaged” by a Registered Nurse.  Patients will be seen according to the severity of their illness.

Patient teaching is provided through the use of handouts, as well as verbal communication.  Staffing excellence is a value at the Englehart and District Hospital and maintaining skill levels increases the quality and enhances the level of care provided
