Our Emergency Department [ED] works around the clock with dedicated staff to provide you with quality care. We are an award winning department prepared to handle a variety of acute illnesses and health care emergencies for adults and children.
When you arrive at Emergency you will be seen by a triage nurse to evaluate the severity of your illness or injury. Following triage you may have to wait in our ED waiting room depending on the number of emergencies [critically ill and injured patients] in the department. You will then be called into the Emergency Department for further care and treatment.
PLEASE REMEMBER - Emergency Departments are for emergencies, if your condition is not an emergency please visit your local doctor or our General Practice Unit located at the hospital:
Fairfield Hospital General Practice Unit
Hours of Service: 8:30am - 5:00pm [Monday to Friday]
