Door-to-Doctor Procedures

In order to ensure you see a doctor as soon as possible, our Emergency Room uses a “Door-to-Doctor” procedure for quick, effective treatment for every patient who comes through our doors. When you arrive, you’ll be seen by a triage nurse who will evaluate your condition and place you in a priority queue based on the severity of your symptoms. This order may change as new patients with more severe symptoms arrive at the emergency room. If your condition changes while you wait, please let the nurse know.

Depending on your condition, you may be sent to the emergency room to be seen by a doctor or asked to wait until an exam room is available.

After being seen by an emergency room doctor, you’ll either be sent home with instructions or referred to a consulting doctor or specialist who will decide if you should be admitted to the hospital.

Request Your File of Life; It Just Could Save Your Life!

Saint Vincent Hospital is pleased to announce participation in the File of Life program. During a medical emergency, there is often a lot of confusion, panic, and urgency. The File of Life puts vital information in the hands of emergency first responders and allows them to begin treatment based upon the patient's medical history and prescription information.

The File of Life is a red, magnetic packet that contains important medical information about the individual as well as list contact information for their doctor, family members, insurance information and any other special circumstances that rescue personnel should know. It is designed to help the local fire department, paramedics, and emergency rooms obtain the necessary medical history and emergency contact information in an emergency. It is kept in plain sight, usually on a refrigerator. The form should be reviewed and updated as needed every six months.
