The Emergency Medicine Department constitutes a basic interface and one of the most important departments in the hospital, as it is the only department that opens its doors to the community around the clock to deal with emergency and critical cases that need immediate intervention, and the department operates on a priority system to determine the seriousness of cases.
The waiting period varies according to the overcrowding in the department as well as the hospital in general. The waiting time depends on the initial medical evaluation in the triage room, and cases are prioritized based on criticality, patients requiring emergency medical intervention, will be attended to first. The situation may seem calm in the waiting room, but doctors and nurses are often busy treating other patients within the department.
The attending physician will inform you of the results and medical decisions of your case as soon as they are obtained.
If you feel that your condition is getting worse while waiting, please report to the medical staff in the department.
In case the doctor did not attend you directly when you entered the treatment room, this time is usually to wait for the laboratory results of the samples that were taken in the assessment room, as well as the waiting period for doctors from other departments who were called for consultation and to express an opinion in these cases or Waiting for x-rays of all kinds.
The initial examination of patients depends on the medical evaluation of the case. Some cases may not show visible signs, but they may be exposed to critical and life-affecting conditions. The medical evaluation follows a specialized medical evaluation system.
