Faster Care. Shorter Waits.

Clark Regional is an immediate bedding facility, which means patients don’t sit for long periods in the waiting room before getting medical attention. Whether you need imaging, surgery or admittance to the hospital, we get you the care you need—fast. That’s one of the reasons we regularly score near the top of the industry for patient experience.

Our Family Takes Care of Yours

From our board-certified physicians and certified emergency nurses (CENs), to our 24-hour hospitalists, every member of our team is dedicated to providing emergency care to their community. Just last year, we treated more than 33,000 adults and children from Clark County and surrounding areas.

Our patients are our neighbors, our friends and our family. At Clark Regional, that connection drives every choice we make at the ED.

A Chest Pain- Accredited Facility 

Clark Regional’s Emergency Department is recognized as an Accredited Chest Pain facility http://www.clarkregional.org/chest-pain-awareness by the American College of Cardiology.

Is It An Emergency?

It can be confusing sometimes to decide when your medical condition warrants a trip to the Emergency Department. But certain signs should not be ignored. Don’t hesitate to come to the ED if you experience:

  • Breathing problems
  • Broken bones protruding from the skin
  • Change in mental status (such as confusion, difficulty walking or unusual behavior)
  • Chest or upper abdominal pain or pressure
  • Continuous bleeding
  • Coughing up or vomiting blood
  • Fainting
  • Heart problems
  • Poisoning or drug overdose
  • Severe burns, cuts, punctures or bites
  • Severe or persistent vomiting
  • Sudden dizziness, weakness or change in vision

When in doubt, come immediately to the ED.

Triage

When you enter the Emergency Department, specially trained medical personnel will help you through a process called triage. Triage helps make sure patients with the most serious needs are treated first. When a life is on the line, minutes matter, so the triage nurse will work fast to address your symptoms, take your vital signs and ask for a short medical history. Nurses then classify visitors according to need:

  • Emergent–patients who have a life-threatening illness or injury
  • Urgent–patients who are in stable condition but need help as soon as possible
  • Nonurgent–patients who have minor problems or chronic complaints that don’t need immediate attention

Patients And Visitors

If you take a loved one to the Emergency Department, keep these in mind:

  • Once a physician has seen the patient, two visitors are allowed.
  • Pediatric patients may have parents or caregivers in attendance at all times.
  • Visitors may be restricted due to patient care needs.
  • Visitors must stay in the patient area or in designated waiting areas (not the hallway).

Ideally, these would run along the side of the page, leading to copy either on separate pages or farther down this page. I’ll check in with our own development team about what they’d recommend is best for mobile-friendly navigation.
