Medical Helpline 116117. The number is free to call and is available 24/7.
The Emergency Department operates a small injuries clinic 8.00–16.00 where suspected small fractures of Espoo residents are treated. If you think you have a fracture, call your health centre first, from where you will be referred to the clinic in Jorvi Hospital.
The health centre emergency department are open on weekdays outside office hours (16.00–8.00) and on weekends. The health centre emergency care are available when treatment cannot be safely postponed to the next day to be treated at the local health centre.
Patients are seen in order of urgency, which is why waiting times can vary. The waiting room has seats for patients and the monitoring and observation rooms are furnished with beds. There is only a limited number of beds, and the allocation of beds is the responsibility of the charge nurse.
Registration and assessing the need for care
Take a number from the ticket machine and wait for your turn to register as a patient.
At the emergency department, the patient's need for care and urgency is first assessed, and the patient will be seen by a nurse or a doctor or placed in a treatment area for monitoring. If necessary, the patient is admitted to hospital.
If the patient's condition does not require emergency care, the patient is advised to contact their own health centre.
Patients are seen in order of urgency. This is why the waiting times can vary regardless of the order of arrival.
Some of the emergency patients are seen by a nurse. The nurses who see emergency patients have been specially trained, and they will always consult a doctor when necessary.
