Photo of the Emergency Department Entrance

The Lenoir Memorial Emergency Department (ED) features a geographical layout that is patient-focused and patient-driven. The design of the area was created to improve the flow of patients and to enhance patient privacy. Upon entering the new ED, patients and visitors first check in at the information desk located just inside the foyer. Security is strategically stationed to the right of the entrance to lend assistance as needed for patients, visitors, and staff.

Beyond the information desk are three private triage areas where nurses perform their initial assessment of patients and route them to the appropriate treatment areas. While in the triage area, the nurse presses a button which alerts registration staff to come to the patient to complete the registration process.

There are 12 private ED treatment rooms including two major trauma rooms. Each room is equipped with new cardiac monitors which are connected to the adjacent nursing station to provide central monitoring of all patients. In addition to the 12 ED rooms are seven Express Care rooms equipped to provide treatment to patients presenting with non life-threatening injuries. Express Care is a fast track for non-emergent patients and routinely provides treatment to patients in 90 minutes or less.

Photo of the Emergency Dept.Nurses operate from a highly functional nursing station which provides them with a view and quick access to all patient rooms. A nourishment area is another feature of the new ED as are sub-waiting areas for physicians to use for family consults and for those times when family members need privacy to grieve the loss of a loved one.

For those accompanying patients to the ED, a spacious waiting area located to the left of the ED information desk should provide all of the amenities a family member needs while waiting to hear about their loved one's condition. Pay phones are located adjacent to the waiting area as are handicapped-accessible restrooms, a vending area, water fountains, and a children's playroom stocked with toys and other fun materials to help pass the wait time for young visitors.
