About Our Emergency Medicine Services
Skilled Staff on Call, Day and Night, for Immediate Care
The Emergency Department at Bayshore offers the expertise of a highly trained staff of medical professionals, all ready to respond to the immediate health care crises of area residents.
Expert Emergency Medicine Team
Critical members of the medical team include board-certified emergency medicine physicians, along with experienced mid-level providers – physician assistants and nurse practitioners – with clinical specialty training in emergency medicine.
Providing crucial hands-on health care are accomplished registered nurses with Trauma Nursing Core Course training, in addition to certifications in Basic Life Support, Advanced Cardiac Life Support and Pediatric Advanced Life Support.
Patient care associates are on staff to perform a variety of diagnostic and monitoring services, while patient advocates are available 12 hours per day as a resource for patients and their families.
Housing 13 acute-care beds, in addition to ten Fast Track beds, the Emergency Department promptly evaluates a patient's condition via a skilled triage nurse, who determines the immediacy of treatment needed.
A negative pressure room is available to accommodate patients with infectious disease, in addition to a specially outfitted room to handle eye and ear ailments. A locked room is on-hand, should a patient require crisis intervention and secure supervision.
With its Fast Track Program, the Emergency Department is able to quickly treat non-life threatening conditions, utilizing the skilled services of physician assistants and nurse practitioners.
These medical professionals can often oversee basic diagnostic tests and procedures, such as X-rays, splinting and suturing, under the direction of a staff physician, allowing for improved patient flow and reduced treatment turnaround time.
Primary Stroke Center
Bayshore Hospital is a designated Primary Stroke Center, indicating that its specially trained Stroke Team is prepared with the skills and equipment necessary to expeditiously assess stroke symptoms and determine the proper immediate treatment.
Consisting of a physician, registered nurse, respiratory therapist and emergency department staff, the Stroke Team's quick response can dramatically impact a patient's successful recovery from a stroke.

When to Call 911?
When an emergency threatens a person's life, limbs or sense organs – such as heart attacks, strokes, breathing problems, broken bones, head and neck injuries, cuts with severe bleeding, and eye injuries – call 911 immediately.
Be prepared to provide the condition of the person experiencing the medical emergency, and location of the person for the ambulance staff to arrive.
It is important to have a list of medications being taken by the patient, if possible, to assist the first responders in assessing the medical situation.
