How does the Emergency Department handle accident cases?

The nature of a vehicular accident is explained by the automobiles involved, type of crash and the injuries acquired by the individuals. An accident is never a pleasant experience, but the team at the Emergency Department are trained to face any situation brought to them. It is nearly impossible to predict the outcome of an accident.

If the condition of the patient is serious, specialised doctors are brought onto the scene to handle the patient .

What you should know about the Emergency Department

The Emergency Department was created to provide immediate care and assess injuries after an accident. It is not designed to provide ongoing care, except in life-threatening cases or where immediate surgery is necessary.
