Family Member Frequently Asked Questions

Why may I not find my loved one by name at the Emergency Department?
When a trauma patient arrives in the Emergency Department, their personal information is often unavailable so he or she may be temporarily named under a “trauma alias.” The alias also serves as protection of the patient’s identity. Please ask the patient registration representative to assist you with locating your loved one.
