Emergencies: when?

A visit to the A&E is often unexpected. Your GP or a specialist in the hospital can refer you to the A&E Department. If you are not sure whether admission to the A&E is necessary, we advise you to contact your GP first. If you cannot contact your GP, you can always go to the A&E Department on your own initiative.

On arrival at the hospital, you will be registered by a receptionist. You will be asked about the reason of your visit, whether a GP referred you and whether the visit is the result of an accident (work, sports or school).

A nurse will then assess the severity of the situation after a short interview and assign you a code depending on the seriousness of your condition. This code helps to quickly identify patients with the most urgent conditions. Of course, they will be treated first. Because of this, you may have to wait a while. Feel free to ask the emergency staff for an estimated waiting time.

After a consultation with the emergency physician or a specialist, you may need additional technical examinations (blood draws, urine testing, radiography...). These tests are often completed before you are taken to a room in the hospital. This brings you exactly to the department that is most suitable for your needs.
