Department Operations

In Emergency

  1. Take a number and be seated in the waiting room.
  2. A nurse will call you for triage. Triage is performed by a specialized nurse who will ask you questions about the reason for your visit and evaluate your symptoms. The Emergency Department uses the Canadian Triage and Acuity Scale to assess the level of acuity and order of priority of each individual.
  3. Once triage is completed, you will be sent to the appropriate waiting room for your condition.
  4. Blood samples may be taken or other tests performed before you are seen by a doctor.
  5. Your condition will be reassessed while you wait.
  6. A doctor will see you.

The triage nurse is available at all times if you have questions or if your condition changes. 

Before Leaving
