Once you have been attended to by your healthcare team, you will either be admitted in the hospital or discharged to go home, based on your medical situation.
You will be given documents with follow-up instructions that need to be practised at home. You will also be given the results of the tests performed that should be shared with you regular doctor for further medical attention. A nurse will hand over these documents to you after removing the IVs, if any. However, it is important to undrstand that this process may take some time.
Admitted in the hospital
If your situation is critical, you will be moved to a hospital room to monitor your progress. Since rooms might be available only at varying times, it is important to be patient and calm. The hospital will ensure you get the best possible treatment in the ED and will continue to do so even after you get a designated room.
