Visiting the Emergency Department

If you experience an emergency and are able to get yourself to American Hospital Dubai’s ER Department, you will be registered into the system as quickly as possible. Our diligent and compassionate triage nurses will assess your injury or condition, ensuring that all symptoms are recorded to determine an accurate diagnosis. After the nurse has checked your vital signs, such as temperature and blood pressure, you will be admitted to the treatment area where you will be attended to by the on-call doctor.

AHD’s superior facilities are innovatively designed to enable our doctors to run several important tests. After a thorough examination of the patient’s symptoms and the test results, the doctor will begin the appropriate treatment. Depending on their status, he or she will then be either discharged, hospitalized or referred to a specialist.
