At some time in everyone’s life, a visit to the emergency room will be necessary, whether it’s for a feverish baby, a car wreck, a heart attack or one of the myriad conditions that crop up every day. The GLH ER is staffed full time by Emergency specialists, each bringing years of experience in every aspect of crisis care. Registered Nurses with ER training oversee the process from your arrival in the waiting room until treatment is administered and you’re ready to go home or be admitted. After triage, patients are directed to the emergency ward or the “Fast Track” center, where less serious conditions are evaluated and managed. GLH’s wide range of specialty physicians are available for consultation with the ER doctors. Should a patient’s condition require more complicated care unavailable at GLH, referral by ambulance or medical helicopter is an option.
