The Emergency Department Team
An Emergency doctor is on duty at all times. The doctor is responsible for the medical care of patients coming to the emergency department. When necessary a second doctor is on duty during the day to care for less urgent patients.
Emergency nurses are assigned to each area of the department. You may have several different nurses care for you during your visit.
Other doctors called residents also see patients. Residents have their medical degrees and can practice while they continue their training under specialists.
Medical students supervised by other doctors may be involved with your care.
The nurses and doctors are assisted by other health care workers including clerks, social workers, First Nations Health Programs liaison personnel, paramedics, mental health nurses, X-ray and lab technologists, and clergy.
Remember to bring...
- Your Yukon Health Care Insurance Plan card or other medical insurance card.
- A list of medications you take. If you do not have time to make a list, please bring the bottles.
- Any records you have concerning your health.
