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.
