Assessing the needs of patients quickly and efficiently.

At E&J Medical Center, we immediately assess the needs of patients upon arrival at our Emergency Department to determine how urgent their injury or illness is and how soon treatment is required. This process is known as triage. Through triaging, we ensure that patients who require urgent medical attention are treated more quickly than patients with less urgent needs.

Triage classifies patients according to their needs:

  • Emergent: Patients with life-threatening injuries or illnesses
  • Urgent: Patients who are in stable condition but require medical attention as soon as possible
  • Non-Urgent: Patients with minor problems

Patients with non-urgent needs may be required to wait to be accommodated for one or more of the following reasons:

  • Treatment rooms or beds have to be prepared
  • Other patients require immediate medical treatment
  • Ambulances bringing in more critical patients
