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.

Critical Care Unit

During the internship year, Overlook Family Medicine residents spend two months in intensive care, directly supervising the care of severely ill patients with a wide range of medical problems under the supervision of attending physicians in cardiology, pulmonology, infectious disease and other intensivists. 

Residents learn to manage patients on ventilators; perform procedures such as placing central and arterial lines; attend lectures and daily radiology rounds; perform paracentesis and thoracentesis; participate on the code team; and communicate with families regarding patients' care preferences and bioethics issues. Residents help to integrate specialist input into a comprehensive care plan for each patient, while functioning as part of a team with other residents, medical students, intensive care nurses and a teaching attending.
