THE HIGHEST QUALITY & QUICKLY CARE
In an emergency, every minute counts in providing the best care. At the Saudi German Hospital, Sharjah Emergency Department, this not only means quality medical care, it also means personalized attention to our patients’ and families emotional and spiritual needs. Our emergency room staff sets high standards of care, and we take pride in meeting and possibly even exceeding these standards. Our staff is well-prepared to meet the demands of the emergency room.
The SGH Sharjah Emergency Department assesses and treats people with serious injuries and those in need of emergency treatment. We are open 24/7 week.
The department is divided into a number of separate areas:
Resuscitation room :
This area is used for the treatment of seriously ill or injured patients.
Major treatment area :
This area is used for the assessment and treatment of patients with illnesses and injuries which do not require the facilities of the resuscitation room but may be too unwell to be placed in the waiting room or to be directly transferred to the care of an Outpatient Department physician.
- Separate treatment cubicles are provided for our younger patients.
- A negative-pressure isolation room.
- To prevent cross-contamination of illnesses.
In our Emergency Department, you’ll find a team of physicians and nurses who work together to ensure that our patients receive the best possible treatment.
Three Important Steps
Triage – Upon arrival, the patient is seen by a triage nurse who will prioritize care needs based on symptoms and how the patient is sick or injured.
Registration – A registration clerk takes information about the patient (name, age, etc.), insurance coverage and their current physicians.
Medical Care – Every patient is assigned to a physician and nurse. But it’s likely that the patient will be seen by more than one physician, nurse, and patient care staff member during their stay.
Discharge – If you are fit to go home after treatment, written discharge instructions will be provided. Follow-up recommendations from a member of our staff or a specialist will be mentioned on the form. Once home, if symptoms worsen or change, the patient should contact their primary care physician or return to the Emergency Department.
