Emergency Room

Emergency Room

The Winnebago ER Department is staffed around the clock with physician specialists, nurses, and EMS personnel ready for any emergency. The staff works hard to ensure that patients receive lifesaving medical care quickly and effectively.

What to Expect
When you come to our ER, you will sign in to be seen by our triage nurse. The triage nurse will assess the severity of your illness or injury.

If the Triage nurse determines that you need immediate medical care, you may be immediately admitted to a private room in the ER where you will be registered and seen by the ER physician.

Depending on your medical needs, you may be asked to wait in our reception area until a room becomes available in the ER. There are restrooms located near the waiting area.

Our ER physician may order blood and diagnostic tests. X-ray equipment is located in directly across the hall in our Radiology Department for quick access to diagnostic procedures. Our ER ensures patients receive the best emergency care available.

Our ER physicians and registered nurses specialize in emergency medicine. If necessary, a consulting physician specialist may be called. Your ER nurse will continually monitor your care and keep you informed. If you have any questions, please ask.

If you are not admitted to the hospital, you will be discharged from the ER with a written plan of care. In some cases, social workers and case managers will be able to help with after care services.
