Our Emergency Department is fully staffed by specialty-trained, board-certified emergency medicine physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, trauma certified nurses, Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners, registered paramedics, case managers and social workers.
We offer state-of-the-art treatment protocols for:
- or ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI) with our primary angioplasty intervention program.
- With state-of-the-art diagnostic criteria to most safely select those patients who should undergo thrombolytic therapy, a "clot buster" drug that can open up closed arteries to the brain to reverse the injury and protect the brain. Through our affiliation with Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), we can access stroke specialists from MGH by telemedicine who can remotely examine patients at WDH to help diagnose the patient's condition and recommend a plan of care.
- Protocols are available to use in the care of the patient with sepsis (serious infection) so that early recognition and rapid intervention based on standard protocols can improve patient outcomes.
- Trauma Team activation is available to immediately respond to adult and pediatric trauma patients received at WDH. We are identifying changes in our trauma system in collaboration with MGH as part of our affiliation.
Emergency staff is involved in research, education, prevention, disaster planning, community education, public safety policy, toxicology, pre-hospital care and emergency trauma medicine.
