Nurse Triage

Patients who enter Jupiter Medical Center's Emergency Department during our busiest hours are immediately seen by a triage nurse. Pronounced "tree-ahj," the triage nurse identifies the patients who need care first and determines what level of care is needed for the illness or injury. Triage nurses are specially trained to separate minor needs from major emergencies. A brief medical history will be taken, questions will be asked related to you specific injury or illness, your vital signs are checked, and you will either be sent to the Registration Desk or to the treatment area. Patients who are critically ill will receive immediate attention.
