Grant Memorial Hospital Emergency Department is staffed with qualified emergency physicians and medical personnel ready to provide safe and quality emergency care to our patients and family/caregiver when needed. All staff receives on-going education in advanced cardiac life support, pediatric advanced life support and trauma care. Realizing your visit to an emergency department may be a stressful time, family members and caregivers are included in the care as much as possible. Our commitment is to provide safe, comfortable, informed, and high quality care as well as meet patients and their family’s needs.
Our staff treats immediate health needs from minor to serious injury, illness or disease. Patients are medically screened, and appropriate care is provided to all patients who come to the department with a complaint. The number of patients in the Emergency Department and the severity of their conditions will determine the appropriate order for patients to be seen. Patients with the most serious problems are seen first.
All standard procedures and services provided include but not limited to suturing lacerations, phlebotomy, radiographic diagnostics, lab testing, EKG monitoring, pulse oximetry, and medication administration. When necessary, critically injured or seriously ill patients are treated and stabilized in the Emergency Department and then transferred by ambulance to a higher level of care. Many patients are admitted or observed to Special Care, Medical/Surgical or Family Maternity Units for further treatment after receiving initial treatment in the Emergency Department.
