The goal of the Emergency Department is to provide high-quality medical care in an efficient and caring manner. Emergency nurses are trained in medicine and trauma triage. Our contracted emergency medicine trained physicians and department staff communicate with patients, families, and their primary care physicians. Family participation is encouraged in the treatment area. However, for confidentiality purposes, one family member at a time may accompany the patient in the treatment area.
If the need arises, emergency transport services back up our expert staff, with ground and air travel. Helicopter services provided by LifeNet are based at SVRHC and are ready at a moment's notice. Staffed by flight nurses, professional pilots, who are all certified in emergency care, our patients receive needed stabilizing during their transport to tertiary levels of care. Ground transportation, staffed by certified paramedics and Emergency Medical technicians, is readily available.
The patient’s visit to the Emergency Department is thoroughly documented by staff and physicians. All records and personal medical information transmission are designed to meet federal HIPPA regulations.
Very sick patients often need to be admitted to the hospital, but if no beds are available, they have to wait in the emergency department until one becomes available. This practice is known as “boarding”. Care in the department is monitored by statistical and via survey analysis, all emergency and hospital staff appreciate and encourage direct feedback from patients or family members about the Emergency Department’s services.
