Compare Elite Care 24 Hour Emergency Center to the Hospital Experience and Choose Wisely
The simple truth is you already know what to expect when you go to a hospital emergency department; access to medical emergency care will be dfficult and time consuming. You will have to park somewhere inconvenient. You will wait. You will be directed to a separate registration department. You will wait, again. You will be “triaged”. This means that you will be assigned a priority behind ambulance cases and any other patient needs that the hospital deems more urgent.
The primary purpose of many hospital emergency departments is inpatient admissions and not outpatient services. You will be treated accordingly. You will be directed from department to department for testing and ancillary services. You may never see the same person twice. Your results may or may not be adequately communicated to you and your regular physicians in a timely fashion.
