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.

Adult Emergency Medicine

In their first year, Overlook Family Medicine residents spend one month on the Adult Emergency Medicine rotation. Residents are often the first contact for the patient and are intimately involved in his or her initial evaluation. Closely supervised by emergency department (ED) physicians, residents rotate in the fast track area, providing urgent care to patients with less emergent conditions, and taking cases triaged from the full ED. Most of these interventions are procedural: Residents have the opportunity to perform procedures such as suturing, splinting, I&D’s, and foreign body removal.
