About Our ER Wait Time

ER wait time is the average wait time for a patient to see a registered nurse during the triage (evaluation) process in our ER. After patients are triaged (evaluated), they are seen by qualified medical professionals in priority order, according to their medical condition and reason for visit. Times are approximate and provided for information purposes only.

Geriatric Emergency Department Accreditation (GEDA)

At Saint Clare’s Health, seniors have earned a little extra consideration, and we are honored to care for the older adults of Morris County.

Saint Clare’s Denville and Dover locations earned the Geriatric Emergency Department Accreditation (GEDA) recognizing emergency departments that go above and beyond to provide excellent care for older adults. The GEDA program is the culmination of years of progress in emergency care of older adults. In 2014, four geriatric focused organizations developed and released geriatric ED guidelines. These guidelines recommended measures ranging from adding geriatric-friendly equipment to specialized staff to more routine screening for delirium, dementia, and fall risk, among other vulnerabilities.

The voluntary GEDA program provides specific criteria and goals for emergency clinicians and administrators to target. A Geriatric Accredited emergency department must incorporate selected best practices, as well as provide inter-disciplinary geriatric education, and have geriatric appropriate equipment and supplies available.

At Saint Clare’s Health emergency departments, we’ll see you quickly, and we take time to evaluate your condition and develop the best plan of care for you. With our geriatric trained Emergency Nurses, our collaborative ER team is trained to identify older adults that need extra support during and after their hospitalization.

In addition, we work closely with you to manage your long-term health and wellness. Our clinicians develop a discharge plan with you and your family to help you manage your future healthcare needs.

Our accredited senior Emergency Department features an atmosphere to enhance safety and comfort. During your stay, you can expect the following:

  • Educated Geriatric Emergency Nurses
  • Easy-to-read signs and clocks
  • Extra seating for family
  • Large print signage and documents
  • Reading glasses
  • Skid-proof footwear
