Emergency Department (ED)

The East Jefferson General Hospital Emergency Department is known for its efficiency, quality diagnosticians and superior emergency management. EJGH's state-of-the art facility encompasses 18 private rooms, 4 fast-track beds and 33 beds total. In addition, our ED has earned a reputation for excellence due to innovative procedures and digital technologies such as the Computerized Physician Order Entry (CPOE) which allows doctors to automatically update patient charts, collaborate with other physicians and immediately notify nurses of any changes in treatment course.

In fact, in 2009 City Business Magazine named East Jefferson's Emergency Department an Innovator of the Year for implementing the CPOE throughout the department. Our ED has also won a number of awards from the American Heart Association for Heart Failure Care.

By streamlining processes through technology and utilizing best practices in triage, our elite cadre of nurses and physicians, certified in Trauma Care, treat approximately 52,000 patients every year, almost all of whom are seen within 30 minutes of arrival to EJGH's ED.

The privacy and confidentiality of our patients is very important to us. Therefore, we ask that visitors are limited to one person per room. Under special circumstances, more than one visitor may be allowed in a room. In this case, the primary visitor will be given a visitor pass, which can be exchanged with another visitor at any time.
