Emergency Department

SLMHC provides a fully staffed emergency department (ER)  24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Upon arrival at the registration desk at the emergency entrance, a client will be asked to report their chief medical complaint, heath card number, address and allergies. The client will then be triaged by an emergency nurse and will be asked to provide a history of their medical complaint, report any medications they are taking and a nursing assessment will be completed. Triage scoring is done at this time to help determine a pathway for care.
