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 Landmark Emergency Department 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 ED, 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 Landmark before.
- 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.
