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.

Concussion Education For Physicians

Children and teenagers who have sustained concussions need to be closely monitored. Attentive care from pediatricians and physicians can help keep them from suffering long-term, possibly permanent damage.

Who should be screened for concussions?

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), physicians should screen individuals who have been injured in:

  • High-speed activities (car accident)
  • Sports and recreational activities
  • Falls, especially from a significant distance
  • Physical mistreatment
  • Blast exposures (military personnel)

How do I determine when my patients can resume their normal activities?

According to the CDC, a patient should not undertake any activity that causes concussion symptoms to reemerge. Physical and mental rest are the keys to recovery.
