Two triage areas, one at each entrance (our public entrance and our emergency medical services entrance) are places where our specially trained triage nurses determine the severity of a patient's illness or injury.
Team Triage occurs during peak hours. At such times, you will be met in triage rooms by a nurse, physician, physician’s assistant, nurse practitioner, patient care technician, registrar, and others. Your vital signs will be checked and you may also receive tests including EKG's, x-rays and lab tests. You may be administered medication.
