The Richland Hospital's Emergency New Medical Department includes:
¨ A two-bed major trauma room is used for code blues, heart attacks, strokes, motor vehicle crashes, bike accidents, overdoses and other major traumas.
¨ Patients suffering from abdominal pain, dehydration, fractures or other incidents requiring major treatment utilize a two-bed major treatment room.
¨ Three smaller exam rooms are used to treat patients suffering from sore throats, earaches or other similar ailments.
Patients needing emergency medical care are treated according to their degree of acuity or seriousness.
E.R. patients are not cared for in order of their arrival time. They are triaged, ensuring that patients most in need of critical care receive prompt medical attention.
Should a patient need to be transported from our facility, the hospital has access to emergency medical helicopter services via their helipad on the roof of the hospital.
