Once you have checked in at the front desk, you will be directed to a triage area where you will be met and assessed by the triage nurse. The nurse will determine the severity of your complaint which will help the nurse arrange the most appropriate care for you. It is important that you bring current medication bottles with you including vitamins and supplements, so staff will be best prepared to treat you and your illness or injury. Once your medical screening examination is complete, a Registration staff member will complete your registration at the bedside.
