Prepare today for what might happen tomorrow. You’ll be thankful if an emergency occurs.
There are few situations more stressful than heading to the emergency room. The uncertainty, the paperwork, the waiting room – there’s got to be an easier way! At Aventura Hospital and Medical Center, there is. We strive to make every emergency room visit go as smoothly as possible. Here are just a few ways we’re working to serve you best during an emergency.
We want to make those long ER wait times a thing of the past. How are we doing? You can find out by visiting our website. We always have the average wait time of the last four hours posted. Although waits often depend on the severity of your condition, these numbers can give you a good idea of what you might expect in our ER.
We have several new technologies that help us avoid the usual stack of paperwork required to check-in. The ED kiosk will scan your driver’s license and allow you to detail your concern or complaint. The machine will automatically attach this information to your digital patient file and transport it to a triage nurse.
Patients with smartphones or tablets can check-in before they even arrive at our facilities. Download the iTriage app and use the iNotify function to let us know you’re on your way. We may be ready and waiting for you from the moment you walk in.
You never know when an emergency may occur, but you can still plan for one. Where would you go if the unthinkable occurred? Learn more about the expert emergency care we provide at our website or call our Emergency Department at (305) 682-7000.
