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.

Before Going Home

At Atlantic Health System facilities, we want to ensure that all necessary steps are in place for a smooth and safe transition back home after your hospital stay. When the person who will take you home has arrived:

  • Notify your nurse
  • Decide with your nurse whether or not you will need a  wheelchair to leave your hospital room
  • Check all closets, bathrooms, nightstands and tray tables for your belongings; the hospital cannot be responsible for personal items left behind
  • Retrieve all valuables and medications from the security and pharmacy departments if you have items in those departments
