Wait times represent the average estimated length of time from registration to being assigned a "first provider" (a doctor, nurse practitioner or physician assistant). Times displayed for Atlantic Health Systems are:

  • Reported as an average of wait times for the previous 2 hours of patients that have presented to the emergency department and have been seen by a provider
  • Refreshed at least every 15 minutes

Many circumstances can affect wait times - for example, patients arriving by ambulance or with life-threatening injuries or illnesses. Patients with severe conditions will be seen before those with less-serious problems or ailments. These times are provided for informational purposes only and cannot be guaranteed upon arrival.

Jaundice

Jaundice is the yellow color seen in the skin of many newborns. It happens when a chemical called bilirubin builds up in the baby’s blood. Jaundice can occur in babies of any race or color. About 50 percent of full-term infants develop jaundice. If your baby is premature, the chances are even higher – about 80 percent – that jaundice will develop during the first week of life. It's important to have your baby checked for jaundice by a doctor or nurse at three to five days of age. Learn more about jaundice from the American Academy of Pediatrics >

Call your baby’s doctor if:

  • Your baby’s skin turns more yellow.
  • Your baby’s abdomen, arms or legs are yellow.
  • The whites of your baby’s eyes are yellow.
  • Your baby is jaundiced and is hard to wake, fussy, or not nursing or taking formula well.
