Information For Emergency Patients

We know no one wants to be an emergency patient, and that patients and their families may be upset or frightened by their illness or injury. You are in good hands. Our staff is highly trained to provide excellent care. If you have any questions after discharge, or if there is anything we can do for you, call the Emergency Department 202- 24544557.


Upon arrival, a registered nurse will see you. This is the beginning of your medical treatment. The triage nurse will ask the reason for your visit, inquire about your medical history and perform a brief exam. Triage helps determine the severity of your condition and helps ensure the most urgent patients are seen by a physician first. This is why someone who arrives after you may be taken into the treatment area before you.


You will be asked for information necessary to begin your chart.Ê If an exam room is available, you will be taken directly into the treatment area. Otherwise, you will be asked to remain in the reception area.


In the treatment area, the testing process begins. A certified emergency room physician will see you. Your nurse may start an IV, obtain a blood or urine sample or send you for an X-ray if necessary. Physicians see patients based on the severity of their illness. Our goal is to evaluate all patients in a timely manner. Evaluations may take up to three hours, or longer if specialized tests are needed. Waiting time may increase during peak tourism months.


The treatment area has a limited capacity. Initially, relatives and friends are asked to remain in the reception area unless their presence is absolutely necessary for the care of the patient. In this way, the patients' needs can be met and privacy maintained. Minor patients may be accompanied by their parents.


Once all test results are received, the Emergency Department physician will reevaluate you. Based on these results and your condition, you may be discharged home or admitted to the hospital. Your private physician will be contacted to help in this decision. If you do not have a physician, one will be assigned to you from our on-call list of specialists. Extended waiting time may occur due to delays in test results, availability of hospital beds or consultation with specialists.


When you are discharged, you will be given written after-care instructions to follow at home. It is important for you to follow-up with your private physician or the referral physician.
