Scope of Service:
The DEM provides a comprehensive emergency service to all patients presenting to the department on a 24 hour basis. The department accepts all patients for treatment. Patients are triaged according to a 5-level triage system; ensuring patients are assessed and managed according to acuity. This triage is carried out by the DEM triage nurses who are certified as triage nurses following successful completion of the triage course. This includes clinical check off by the DEM clinical instructor before being assigned to the triage area. These nurses are able to triage and care for all types of patient complaints like ACUTE CARDIAC Syndrome, trauma and others. DEM staff are specialized emergency healthcare providers who have advanced qualifications and experience. Patients from all medical categories receive emergency care and medical referral as necessary.
An integrated VIP area provides Urgent Care to distinguished members of the community.
The department is able to provide rapid resuscitation, stabilization and transfer of critically ill patients. Although the department is not a designated Trauma Center, it provides advanced Trauma care to patients brought to the department. The department provides disaster management to the community in the event of Major Incidences.
An extended Urgent Care Center operates almost continuously to meet the needs of less acute presentations. A dedicated urgent care service allows for non-emergency presentations to be treated more expediently, freeing the core department to receive emergent cases as they present. The department receives and assesses direct admissions to the hospital, including MediVac patients en route to intensive care areas within the hospital. It caters for both adult and pediatric patients.
