What to expect in the emergency room

After you check in to the ER, you’re quickly evaluated and moved to an emergency care treatment area. You’re seen by an emergency care nurse and physician at the same time so you don’t have to repeat your symptoms. Your emergency department team may then order additional tests or prescribe a treatment plan to help get you treated quickly and efficiently. Scripps is one of the first health systems in California to Implement this new emergency department assessment system.

If the situation is life-threatening, dial 9-1-1 immediately.
