Emergency Department

 

Baptist Health Corbin's Emergency Department is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week to provide urgent care for patients of all ages with all types of medical problems, from minor illnesses and injuries to life-threatening emergencies.

ASSESSING URGENT CARE NEEDS

Patients enter the Emergency Room by various routes including ambulatory, ambulance, and aero-medical transport.  Upon arrival, patients are assessed and assigned a triage code based on nationally validated severity index (Emergency Severity Index or ESI).  ESI levels range on a scale of 1-5, with ESI 1 representing an acute life or limb threatening condition and ESI 5 representing a very minor condition. ESI levels are assigned based upon nationally recognized criteria that assess resource needs for each patient.

Our emergency physicians, registered nurses and other clinical professionals are specially trained in emergency medicine and delivering rapid-response, high-quality care.  

The Emergency Department is equipped with 17 beds, with two (2) rooms dedicated for behavioral and mental health patient care. A helipad is available for transporting critically injured or ill patients to Level I trauma center facilities in Lexington or Knoxville.
