Emergency Service
Group Florence Nightingale Hospitals Emergency Medicine Department is a fully equipped medical department that provides timely and adequate medical intervention for patients who apply to group hospital emergency services. The laboratory and radiology departments, which ensure efficient operation of the Emergency Service unit, work 24 hours a day and provide uninterrupted service.  

One of the most important features that distinguishes Group Florence Nightingale Hospital Emergency Service Units from other emergency units is that our patients who have applied to our emergency department are brought together with the relevant specialist and consulted. Our patients who apply to the emergency service do not have to go to the specific department.

Physicians, nurses and other healthcare professionals of our hospitals are trained to deal with critically ill patients, injury cases as well as patients with simpler health problems. Patients admitted to our emergency services are listed by healthcare professionals according to the importance of their condition, and physicians treat the patients with priority according to this order. This is called the "Triage System". This system has been defined by international accreditation and scientific organizations.

Multi-functional beds are available in our emergency service unit, where all kinds of emergency interventions can be performed and transfers  of the patients to the relevant services without moving the patient will be provided.
