Below are some helpful hints on how to handle a visit to the Emergency Department:

For Your Protection
Please secure all valuables by leaving them with a family member or friend. Lourdes ED cannot be responsible for lost or stolen items.

We request that only one visitor accompany the patient to the treatment area. If the patient is a minor, both parents may be present.

What to Bring
Bring your identification, insurance and Social Security cards, physician and employer phone numbers and addresses with you to better facilitate your registration.

Keep in Mind
Keep a list of your current medications in your wallet and all recent illnesses, symptoms and allergies. Carry or wear a medical emergency identification tag, bracelet or card which identifies special medical conditions such as diabetes, hemophilia or allergies.
