North Bay General Hosptial

Each year over 45,000 people visit North Bay General Hospital’s Emergency Department. Some 100 to 200 patients are seen daily. Of that 15 to 20 require emergency or urgent attention. Nurses and physicians are available to provide expert and immediate care to those requiring treatment for sudden and serious medical and surgical problems.

The Emergency Department is open 24 hr/day 7 days per week. It is staffed by a multi-disciplinary team of registered nurses, registered respiratory therapists, social services, pastoral care, crisis intervention, orthopaedic technicians and other members of our health care team.

To serve you better we have implemented a 5-level triage system. Highest priority is given to those who are critically ill. Upon assessment people with emergencies will be treated first.

Every patient will be seen, by a registered nurse with special skills and training in triage. Patients should let the nurse know if their condition get worse. There are five levels of triage – patients will be seen by a physician in order of their assessed triage level.

Level 1 – RESUSCITATION:Condition threatens life or limb and requires immediate, aggressive intervention.
Level 2 – EMERGENT: There is a potential threat to life or limb that requires rapid intervention.
Level 3 – URGENT: There is a potential to progress to a serious problem requiring emergency intervention.
Level 4 – LESS URGENT: Factors of age and distress are considered. There is a potential for deterioration or complications.
Level 5 – NON URGENT: Conditions that may be acute but non-urgent as well as conditions which may be part of a chronic problem or without evidence of deterioration. Interventions for some of these can be delayed.
