Upon arrival, a triage nurse will talk to you about your condition and decide the level of care you will need.  Patients who have a critical or life-threatening illness or injury are treated immediately.  Others are screened and put in one of several areas:
Main Emergency Department
For patients of all ages that have a variety of illness and/or injuries.  Most patients are seen here.
Gold Pod
For patients with less serious illnesses who generally do not require complex evaluations and/or testing. At times these patients are seen ahead of other patients because availability of treatment space varies. 

Critical Care Area
For patients who require immediate attention due to a limb or life-threatening illness or injury.
Mental Health Area
For patients who are seeking care for mental health, alcohol or drug problems.
