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.

Your Child's Comfort in the Pediatric Unit

To make your child's hospital experience as calm and comfortable as possible:

  • Parents and grandparents or guardians are welcome 24 hours a day. Please feel free to bring your child’s favorite blanket, toy, stuffed animal or doll to help ease their anxiety.

  • One parent, guardian, or grandparent may stay overnight at your child’s bedside. Either a sleep chair will be provided or the window-seat in your child’s room becomes a bed. Please do not sleep in an empty hospital bed. Siblings may not stay overnight.

  • To keep your child’s bed a “safe haven” at all times, all potentially painful procedures will be done in the treatment room, when possible. You may accompany your child to the treatment room to help reduce his or her anxiety prior to the procedure.

  • Your child may have an intravenous line (IV) connected to an infusion pump which delivers medications and fluids. The infusion pump may sound an alarm for a variety of reasons; if this happens, you should alert your nurse using the call button.
