Q: Recently upon a visit to the emergency department I noticed that another patient was seen by the physician first, even though I was the first to arrive. Why did this happen?
A: Upon arrival to our emergency department, all patients are directed to our triage area. Our triage nurses provide each patient with an assessment of his or her condition. Patients are then seen according to the severity of their condition. We realize that every patient wants to be seen as quickly as possible. Our triage method assists us in expediting this process by identifying patients with the most critical injuries or illnesses.
Q: Will my family physician be contacted regarding my visit to the emergency department?
A: If your condition warrants further evaluation, or if you or your physician request immediate notification of your primary care physician, they will be contacted by our emergency department staff.
Q: What will happen if I need a specialist?
A: Gadsden Regional Medical Center has a full range of specialists on call for our emergency department. Our specialists can be contacted by the emergency physician or your primary care physician.
