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.

Learning About Brain Aneurysms

Brain aneurysms are caused by weakened sections in the walls of blood vessels. These may be hereditary or the result of a previous injury.

Often, an aneurysm will have no symptoms unless it pushes on other structures in the brain or breaks open. This may result in a sudden, severe headache. Other symptoms of a ruptured brain aneurysm include:

  • Confusion
  • Double vision or loss of vision
  • Drooping of an eyelid
  • Weakness
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Numbness
  • Seizures
  • Speech impairment
  • Stiff neck 

Patients with ruptured brain aneurysms should seek immediate medical attention. Atlantic Neuroscience Institute’s Brain Aneurysm Center, located at Overlook Medical Center, provides a variety of diagnostic and treatment options for this condition.
