Patients who come to the emergency department are evaluated to determine the severity of their current illness and symptoms. Our qualified specialists and/or consultants, will determine if the patient's current health condition requires hospital admission, or if the patient can be discharged from emergency care with applicable recommendations to seek additional diagnostic or physician evaluation in an outpatient clinic setting.
All Women Hospital physicians and surgeons from other medical and surgical specialties are on call for consultation, if needed, to aid in determining a plan of care for the patient while the patient is in the emergency room.
When a patient is discharged from the emergency room, he or she will be given recommendations for any follow-up care that may be needed. Often, the emergency medicine physician will recommend that the patient see his or her primary care physician or provider in follow-up. Patients should refer to their discharge instructions for this guidance. People with chronic- or long-standing health should understand that a visit to the Women Hospital emergency room may not expedite a Family specialty department or division appointment.
The Emergency Room at The Women Hospital serve both adult and pediatric patients. Depending upon the pediatric patient's condition and need for medical or surgical subspecialty care in a hospital setting, pediatric patients who are evaluated in the emergency rooms may be transferred to the NICU. The Women Hospital, provides full range of pediatric medical and surgical subspecialty hospital care.
