What would you do in a medical emergency? Although we don’t like to think about that, it’s good to be prepared… just in case. Keep a list of loved ones’ names, addresses, phone numbers, Social Security numbers, current medication (dosage and schedule) and insurance information. Also, know if they have a living will. You or a family member will be asked for this information upon arrival at the Emergency Department at Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center.
You’ll benefit from timely, efficient care in the Emergency Department at Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center.
We have three emergency areas to serve you best:
When a patient is being attended to in the emergency room, a visitor’s pass will be given to one family member. We encourage that family member to serve as the information contact for other loved ones. The hospital staff cannot give information to family members without an okay from the patient.
