Family Member Frequently Asked Questions

Why can I not see my loved one immediately?
The trauma team will be working to evaluate and stabilize your loved one upon arrival. In certain cases this may require diagnostic testing, procedures or an operative intervention in areas of the hospital other than the Emergency Department. The patient registration representative in the Emergency Department will provide you with an update on your loved one as soon as he or she is stabilized.
