Please speak to to a security guard, volunteer or nurse and state the nature of your medical emergency so you can receive the quickest and best care.
You may be asked to sign in and wait to be assessed by a nurse or you may be taken directly inside, depending on the urgency of your condition.
You or your companion will be asked to register to create a chart to document your care.
You may need to wait at various points during your care, such as for the doctor to see you or for a room with specialized equipment to become available for testing. At any time, sicker patients may arrive and delay your treatment. We ask for your understanding when you must wait.
At any time, if you feel your condition has worsened or if you have questions, please speak to a nurse right away.
