About Our ER Wait Time
ER wait time is the average wait time for a patient to see a registered nurse during the triage (evaluation) process in our ER. After patients are triaged (evaluated), they are seen by qualified medical professionals in priority order, according to their medical condition and reason for visit. Times are approximate and provided for information purposes only.
The Emergency Room at Garden Grove Hospital is a paramedic receiving station and is staffed with highly skilled nurses and doctors around the clock. The department has been fitted with the latest technology to give these doctors and nurses the tools they need to give you the best treatment possible. For cardiac and respiratory problems, our caring emergency department staff is certified for advanced and pediatric advanced life support. All of these factors contribute to our emergency room providing some of the lowest, on-average emergency room patient wait times in the area. Foreign language interpreter services are also available if needed.
Every patient has a right to be seen by a physician and receive a medical screening exam. Although your insurance may require pre-authorization for an emergency visit, federal law requires that we evaluate every patient for potentially life-threatening conditions regardless of insurance.
