24-Hour Emergency Services
No one expects a trip to the emergency department, but when it happens, you want a health care team that is not only ready to respond, but equipped with the best technology and most experienced personnel. With so much on your mind, you need to trust that you and your loved ones receive expert care – and Stillwater Emergency Department delivers.
Things to Know if You Drive to the Emergency Department
Please come to the Stillwater Emergency Department located on the clearly marked west end of the hospital, NOT the locked ambulance emergency entrance on the south side. You can help ensure a smooth process by being prepared to offer the patient’s name, date of birth, chief complaint, social security number, photo identification and an accurate list of medications and allergies. You are welcome to bring pill bottles with you to the Emergency Department if making a list is difficult.
What to Expect During Your Visit
Upon your arrival, you will be greeted by an experienced intake clerk who will need to know the reason for your visit to the Emergency Department. A triage nurse will then need a current list of medications taken and any known allergies. The triage nurse will also ask for more details about the reason for the visit. This important assessment begins the care process and the information obtained by the triage nurse is shared with the physician.
Your emergency care doctor determines if it is an emergency medical condition and makes sure care is received. To save lives, patients with immediate, life-threatening conditions such as chest pain, stroke symptoms, abnormal vital signs or serious wounds must be treated first.
The recently renovated Stillwater Medical Center Emergency Department has 15 high-tech private treatment areas, each fully equipped with monitors and multifunctional equipment for treating a variety of needs. Cardiac monitoring is even available in every room.
