Providing Care For Their Patients
Emergency medicine doctors are required to provide care for their patients. They also need to be prepared for the worst: when a patient has an injury requiring surgery or a medical emergency requiring immediate attention. This means that emergency medicine doctors need to be well-trained in caring for their patients, even when little time or resources are available.
Patients who need immediate medical attention but cannot wait for many hours to be seen by an on-call physician congregate at the hospital’s emergency department. You will most likely be seen by a physician specializing in emergency medicine if you have been sent to the emergency room to treat an illness or injury.
You must have a solid understanding of your rights and obligations if you seek care from a physician specializing in emergency medicine. Your rights include being treated with respect, obtaining enough information about your illness, having the opportunity to talk with a physician who is licensed to practice medicine, and having access to all of the healthcare alternatives that are currently accessible.
