The Lakeview Emergency Department is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to serve our community's healthcare needs. We always have a fully qualified team of technicians, nurses and medical providers on staff to help you during your visit.
When you arrive at the Emergency Department, a nurse will ask you a few questions and evaluate you to determine the reason for your visit. This is called triage. You receive medical attention according to the seriousness of your symptoms, illness, or injury as determined during the triage process.
After you are assigned to a room in the Emergency Department, a provider will evaluate you. A member of our team will:
- Ask about your medical history including what medications are you taking, and any allergies you may have.
- Ask you the name of your primary care physician.
- Take your vital signs: blood pressure, pulse, respiration, and temperature.
- Ask you to sign a consent allowing the Emergency Department to treat you.
