Also known as accident & emergency, emergency room, or casualty department, is a medical treatment facility specializing in acute care of patients.
The Emergency Department provides ready access to emergency nursing and medical care 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The department provides clinical services to treat the range of problems with which patients present as an emergency requiring urgent medical care, from life-threatening conditions to minor injury and illnesses, in all age groups from babies to the elderly.
The clinical team at Rockland Hospitals in the Emergency Department, led by specialists in emergency medicine and nursing, seeks to provide patients with the best clinical care as quickly as possible, as well as to allay the distress and anxiety which is often associated with accidents and emergencies.
We aim to keep patients fully informed about their investigations and treatment, and in doing so facilitating patient involvement in decisions about their treatment. The department undertakes continuous self-monitoring to ensure that patients are both treated promptly and made as comfortable as possible during their stay in the ER room.
Equipped with state of the art emergency equipments and staffed by specialist teams, we provide all life-saving procedures, including resuscitation, airway protection, vascular support, cardiac support, cardiac pacing, and multidisciplinary support in case of accidents, falls, and assaults.
ACLS ambulances equipped with the essential equipment like oxygen, ventilator, monitors, syringe pumps, and emergency drugs are available round the clock. A trained doctor and a nurse accompany the patient for each ambulance call. It is our endeavor to ensure that the ambulance leaves the hospital within minutes of receiving the call. Besides the Delhi NCR, we also send our ambulances for outstation calls to J&K, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarkhand, Punjab and Haryana.
