An emergency is when your health condition is serious and requires urgent attention. To ensure that you are getting the best care possible, to reduce unnecessary waiting times, we encourage you to talk to your family physician or healthcare provider. As someone who knows your medical history, your primary healthcare provider can you develop a responsible healthcare program, including advice on care that can be more appropriately provided in his or her office.
Emergency care is based on triage, a system of assigning priorities of medical treatment based on urgency. The triage nurse determines the order in which patients are seen based on their condition. This means the most critically ill or injured patients are treated first, regardless of their arrival time.
