Our Emergency Department, one of the vital resources in southern Brooklyn, operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week. So if a cardiac, pediatric, psychiatric or other medical emergency occurs, you will find us always ready to help. It is staffed by Emergency Department physicians, physician assistants and nurses, who examine the patient, take vital signs, prepare blood work and administer medication.
Forty percent of the patients that come to our Emergency Department are treated in our "Express" area. By separating out this segment of patients, who traditionally spend less time in the Emergency Department, it allows the other staff members to spend more time with the critically ill patients who require more care and treatment.
For those patients who might not need to be admitted to our inpatient services but need to be medically optimized for longer than a standard Emergency Department visit, we now have an observation unit in the Emergency Department.
