Visiting the ER? What do you need to know?
In an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19 infection prevention practices, policies, and protocols have been implemented to ensure patients, visitors, staff, and physicians safety. When visiting the ER we ask that you limit what you bring with you. Most important items to bring with you to the ER is your health card, and a list of medications. Bringing your cell phone with you will allow you to keep your family updated while you are visiting the ER.
