What to Expect

When Visiting The Emergency Department

When you arrive at Sensenbrenner Hospital ER please take a number and wait to be called. When you are called to the triage desk please present your health card, where you will be assessed by the nurse. Once the nurse has assessed your condition you will be prioritized according to your ailment and not your time of arrival. Please bring all medication bottles with every visit (or complete list of medications). If your condition changes while waiting to see the physician please advise the nurse.
