DSFH Emergency Department (ED) is open 24 hours a day all year round. A well-experienced team of specialists and consultants is prepared to handle any medical emergency that comes through our doors. All our ED nurses are ACLS certified. In addition, our consultants in all fields provide on-call coverage 24 hours a day to respond, if needed, to any medical emergencies. Ensuring access to emergency care on a timely basis is our priority.
Triage: In an emergency, those patients with the most urgent medical needs are seen first. When patients enter our ED, they are immediately seen by a triage nurse. This allows our staff to determine what level of care is needed for the illness or injury. The triage staff is specially trained to separate minor needs from major emergencies.
