Landmark Medical Center provides 24-hour Emergency Services at
the Woonsocket Unit, 115 Cass Avenue, Woonsocket. Proudly affiliated
with Harvard Medical Faculty Physicians at Beth Israel Deaconess
Medical Center, a qualified physician or nurse practitioner is
always available to treat your medical problem.
Landmark's Emergency Department now proudly features
"Forerun," a new workflow management system dedicated to one
mission: to accelerate safe care delivery in the ER.
Founded by emergency physicians, Forerun ED makes
information technology work for the clinician, delivering essential
information, when and in the form it is needed, to effectively treat
the patient, while dynamically building a complete, end-to-end
electronic record of the patient visit.
The Woonsocket Unit is staffed and equipped to handle the most
severe emergencies. An emergency is defined as any problem or
condition requiring immediate medical treatment, including a heart
attack, poisoning, burns, severe or sudden pain, significant changes
in breathing, emotional distress, or injuries suffered in an
automobile accident or from a violent act or fall.
In order to aid us in giving you with the best possible care, we
ask that you consider the following:
- Upon entering the Emergency Room, you or a family member
should be able to provide a list of your current allergies and
medications (with dosages).
- We require written permission from a parent for treatment of
children under your care. We can provide you with permission
slips to take home.
- You may wish to call your physician before seeking emergency
or urgent care. Many insurance plans place restrictions on what
is considered a valid reason to seek immediate treatment. If it
is potentially dangerous to take the time to call your
physician, come to the Emergency Department immediately. Please
use "911" appropriately and only in cases where you feel you are
at a health risk.
- Please respect "No Smoking" and "Visitor" policies. To
ensure the privacy of our patients and allow adequate space for
treatment, visitors are limited in the treatment areas. However,
parents may remain with a child. We do understand your concern
for the health and well-being of your family member or friend,
but confidentiality laws do not allow us to discuss certain
aspects of a patient's care.
- Either you or a family member will be asked to provide
information to expedite care, even if you have been treated at
- We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding while
waiting for treatment. Please realize that we must treat
patients with more severe conditions first and that patients
transported to the Emergency Room Department at the Woonsocket
Unit by rescue or ambulance arrive through a separate entrance.
Thus, you may not be aware of their arrival.
