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 Neuromuscular Disorders

Neuromuscular disorders encompass a broad range of disorders of the peripheral nervous system. They may evolve rapidly (Guillain Barre syndrome) or insidiously (diabetic neuropathy, chronic inflammatory demyelinating neuropathy) and lead to many different disabilities.

Most common are peripheral neuropathies, which cause loss of sensation and strength. Myasthenia gravis, for example, is caused by an abnormal immune system response and characterized by muscle fatigue throughout the body, double vision, and drooping eyelids.
