What to Expect at the ER

When you arrive at the Caldwell UNC emergency room, you’ll meet with a triage nurse to assess your symptoms. Depending on the severity of your symptoms, you may have to wait for care.

You may receive tests to help your doctor diagnose your condition. Your emergency room doctor will determine the next steps in your treatment and may work with a Caldwell UNC specialist to provide the treatment that’s best for you.
