› Services and Clinical Centers
Our emergency department (ED) handles all medical emergencies with
professional, compassionate care. The scope of our up-to-date
emergency services includes the immediate delivery of clot-busting
medication for heart attacks and strokes, and the use of
state-of-the-art medical imaging for rapid diagnosis.
The ED staff includes:
Doctors who are trained in emergency medicine and are
board-certified (or board-qualified) by the American Board of
Emergency Medicine. Many of QMC's ED doctors serve as faculty at
the Boston University School of Medicine.
Emergency nurses with extensive experience in critical and
emergency care for adults and children. Specialty certifications
include Advanced Cardiac Life Support, Pediatric Life Support,
Neonatal Resuscitation and the Trauma Nurse Core course. Many
nurses are members of the Emergency Nurse's Association and
Crisis Prevention & Intervention.
Talented medical residents from Boston Medical Center.
A Fast Track service offering expedited, urgent walk-in care for
patients with more minor health problems, illnesses or injuries.
Advanced information technology designed to offer enhanced care
and safety and improved efficiency for patients. This
technology, more commonly seen in larger, tertiary medical
centers, includes a computerized patient-tracking program,
wireless network of computer workstations, automated
medication-dispensing devices and physician order management
software. This means that despite all the data collected
through this technology, the ED is nearly paperless and was one
of the first in the state to apply this technology in its ED.
