What to expect in the Emergency Room

When you enter the Emergency Department, you will be triaged by a registered nurse. This is the evaluation of the seriousness of the patient's condition. Those with the greatest need will be seen first. We respect your time, and we strive to take care of each patient as soon as possible. Waiting times may be longer due to high patient numbers and/or more serious emergency needs.

If you must wait to be seen and treated, please be patient. You should not leave until you have received a medical evaluation. We will serve you as soon as possible. Thank you for allowing us to serve your medical needs at the Johnson County Community Hospital Emergency Department.
