Marquette General's Emergency Department

 

Emergency Department and ExpressCare Walk-in Clinic

 

Upon arrival each patient’s name and basic information is entered in the computerized patient tracking system. Patients are triaged by a registered nurse in a private triage room.

 

The Emergency Department is managed by 9 emergency medicine specialists, the majority of whom are board certified in Emergency Medicine. The department is also staffed with physician assistants, nurses and ancillary staff, who specialize in emergency care.

 

Computerized patient tracking provides patient location and test status for all emergency patients from any terminal in the Emergency Department. In critical situations physicians can place orders while at the patient’s bedside. Electronic documentation allows efficient access to critical medical information. Patients are discharged with easy to read electronic prescriptions and discharge instructions.

 

Emergency physicians trained in hyperbaric medicine treat patients with hyperbaric oxygen for a variety of problems, including carbon monoxide poisoning, decompression sickness (the bends), and problematic wounds. This is the only hyperbaric chamber north of Milwaukee, WI.

 

The Emergency Department connects to the rest of the hospital campus on the third level, with easy access to the Skywalk.
