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.
There are no set visiting hours, and short visits are possible if agreed upon separately with the staff.
Patient inquiries can be made 24/7 tel. 09 4711, 09 4716 7156
