Baptist LifeFlight now comprises four air ambulances that serve the region.
High Level of Care and Service
Certainly no one is clamoring for an event that requires a trip to the ER, but you should know that a higher level of care is accessible when needed. We are very proud of the service our team provides to the community, and we are very pleased that some of most discerning groups in health care think so too:
- Voluntary Hospital Association, Inc. (VHA) Leadership Award for Clinical Excellence
- American Heart Association and The Joint Commission Certified Stroke Center
Tips for Good Emergency Care
In the event you face an emergency room visit, there are some key things to be aware of that can improve and maybe even shorten your visit. As always in case of a life-threatening emergency, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency center.
- Do the Waiting at Home
- Gulf Breeze Hospital ER offers a new service called ER Express that can help you be seen as quickly as possible. The service provides patients who do not have a life-threatening health emergency the opportunity to hold a place in line at the emergency room. Hold your place in line at Gulf Breeze Hospital ER and be on your way to receive care.
- Time of Day
- Morning hours are less busy in an emergency room than in the afternoon. While no one decides the time an emergency takes place, if an event does occur early in the day, it’s better to go ahead and make the trip rather than wait.
- Be sure to bring your driver’s license and insurance information.
- Loved Ones
- The ER team wants each patient to feel as relaxed as possible, and having loved ones nearby helps ensure that feeling. Up to two family members or close friends may be at the patient’s bedside during most times. So that the nurses and physicians can provide the best possible care to you and other patients, it is best to minimize the number of people who accompany you to the ER.
- Medications List
- When you arrive to the ER the clinical team members will ask questions about your condition, take your blood pressure and ask other assessment questions. During that time, it’s helpful to share a list of any medications you are taking. Clinical staff can then develop a care plan and help you feel better.
- Spiritual Support
- Remember too, that if you need spiritual support during your emergency room visit, a chaplain is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. These trained, compassionate people provide a vital level of caregiver service to help your through your crisis.
