EvergreenHealth Monroe's emergency room is designated a Level 4 Trauma Center and is fully certified to handle any medical emergency. If need be, stabilized patients may then be transferred to a higher level trauma center.
The Fast Track area treats patients with less severe illnesses and injuries and allows them to be seen, treated and released more quickly than the standard emergency area.
If your illness requires a more extensive work-up, including labs and x-rays, you will be seen in the regular emergency department area.
The Emergency room offers one of the most advanced, rapid emergency stroke care evaluations in the Puget Sound region, where providers are able to perform a complete evaluation of a potential stroke patient within 20 minutes of arrival.
This allows providers to determine the severity of a stroke diagnosis quickly, while also enabling them to provide the patient with the appropriate medicine to alleviate symptoms, as well as, determine if surgery or other immediate procedures are needed.
Quick evaluations are critical for the diagnosis and treatment of stroke patients and help reduce related long-term disabilities strokes can cause.
During on-call times, including late nights and some weekends, the ED utilizes Telestroke technology to connect with stroke experts for immediate patient evaluations and treatment planning.
