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 Student Athletes

If a student athlete suffers a concussion, he or she needs to make sure they get the appropriate medical treatment before returning to the playing field.

When can athletes return to play?

A student athlete should not resume any physical activities, including gym, exercise, practices or games, as long as his or her symptoms persist. If they experience any symptoms at all, during rest or physical activity, they are not well enough to return to play. Physical exertion should be increased gradually. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends following a step-by-step exertion protocol. Do not move onto the next level until you are completely free of symptoms at the current level of activity.

Student athletes, learn more about the CDC recommendations >
