The Emergency Department is for emergencies only. Please do not come to the Emergency Department instead of going to your GP.
On arrival into the Emergency Department, all patients are registered at the desk. They are then seen by a trained Triage Nurse who will assess there medical condition. Patients are listed according to the seriousness of their condition and the most seriously ill people are treated first. Every effort will be made to keep all patients informed about waiting times.
Please understand that on occasion some injuries require more immediate attention than others.
Under Department of Health Guidelines all patients attending the Emergency Department are charged an attendance fee of €100.00
The AMAU is a short stay unit which receives acutely ill medical patients from the Emergency Department 24 hours per day 7 days per week.
