Emergency Nurses at Aiken Regional
Any emergency department (ED) can become crowded in an instant. So, who is treated first?
Unless you arrive with a life-threatening injury or illness, you will be assessed by a triage nurse who will examine your condition, obtain your vital signs and prioritize your care.
There is always a triage nurse on duty. Triage nurses at Aiken Regional go through a special training course called Emergency Severity Index (ESI) 5-level Triage Course, which is endorsed by the Emergency Nurses Association and the American College of Emergency Physicians.
If you are having an emergency, call 9-1-1 immediately!
