Emergency Care at St. Rose Dominican
Our goal is to get you the emergency care you need, when you need it. At Dignity Health - St. Rose Dominican, our triage-trained nurses are dedicated to getting the right patient to the right doctor in an efficient manner. We do everything we can to expedite your care so you can feel better and get back on your feet.
We designed all three of our emergency rooms (ERs) to handle a wide range of emergencies or traumas. Setting broken bones, performing emergency heart procedures, finding the underlying cause of that stomach ache or rash - the St. Rose Dominican emergency room team provides the care you need with skill and compassion. If you require translation services, we will coordinate them for you when you arrive.
Our services include:
- Rapid diagnosis. We use sophisticated diagnostic technology to obtain a fast, accurate diagnosis, in order to expedite your care.
- On-site testing. We complete all of your testing, including laboratory and imaging tests, right at the hospital, so we can get the answers we need and plan your treatment.
- Expert emergency medicine team. The staff at the St. Rose Dominican Emergency Rooms are among the most expertly trained emergency room teams in Nevada. Our emergency room doctors are board certified through the American Board of Emergency Medicine or American Osteopathic Board of Emergency Medicine. In addition, our emergency room nurses are certified by the Emergency Nurses Association (ENA). The entire team undergoes continuous, rigorous training to ensure that we provide the highest level of emergency care possible. Find a St. Rose doctor.
Children's ER at the Siena Campus
The Siena Campus has one of the only dedicated children's emergency rooms in southern Nevada, and the new Children's ER that opened September 8 is also much larger and more private. Our children's ER caters specifically to children, and we understand that kids are not simply "mini adults." Their medical and emotional needs are unique, requiring specialized care and a warm touch.
Features of our children's emergency room include:
- 24/7, 365 care. No matter what time of day or night you need our services, our staff is here for you, including pediatric emergency medicine doctors.
- Specialized pediatric emergency nurses. Our nurses undergo intensive training and many have received certification from the Emergency Nursing Pediatric Course (ENPC), part of the ENA.
- Child-friendly setting. Our pediatric ER is separate from the main ER, filled with DVDs and toys, to make your child's experience as reassuring and comfortable as possible.
- Level III Trauma Center. We provide prompt, efficient care for a wide range of pediatric emergencies, including surgery and intensive care.
- Collaborative care with your family pediatrician. Once you leave the hospital, we coordinate with your pediatrician to ensure that your child receives the necessary follow-up care.
You can find comfort knowing that your child is in the hands of trained experts who are dedicated to caring specifically for children in an emergency setting. It is always our hope that you and your child will not have to visit an emergency room. However, should you need us, St. Rose Dominican is here to serve and care for you in the way only we know how: with compassion and clinical excellence.
