In an emergency every second counts, and at Natchitoches Regional Medical Center, we see community members with a wide range of emergency medical needs including chest pain, strokes, orthopedic injuries, trauma, serious illnesses, asthma, and more.
With the Life Air Rescue helicopter stationed at the hospital and services provided by the parish owned Emergency Medical Services, NRMC’s ER care has grown substantially in recent years.
With two cardiac rooms, two trauma rooms, and 10 treatment rooms, the ER sees approximately 60 patients a day, and the ER doctors and staff work around the clock, seven days a week to provide care.
The experienced and skilled nursing team includes nurses trained in Advanced Cardiac Life Support Pediatric Advanced Life Support, Trauma Nurse Core Curriculum, and Emergency Nurse Pediatric Certification.
For patients who come into the Emergency and need to be admitted, NRMC’s hospitalists – doctors specially trained to care for hospital patients – ensure a smooth transition of care from the ER to a nursing floor. Working with laboratory, imaging, and other departments, the hospitalists coordinate care amongst a multidisciplinary team.
