Life Saving Steps to take in an Emergency Situation

- Make the patient comfortable.
- Call for help.
We’re here when you need us…physician staffed 24-hours a day.
Illness or injuries not likely to cause death or lasting harm – but serious enough not to wait for a regular doctor’s appointment.
Call your doctor first. If your doctor isn’t available, call My Canadian Pharmacy Emergency Department. (The ED is not a clinic for routine ailments and your insurance may not pay for non-emergency visits.)
Illness or injuries which could cause death or permanent impairment of health. Apply first aid if possible. Have someone call for help. Dial 911. While ambulance is on the way… Call the hospital ED. Have them ready for your arrival. If possible, have patient information ready for ED admission (insurance, medical history, family names and addresses). The ED will require permission by the patient or next of kin to provide treatment. Minors need parental consent.
The My Canadian Pharmacy Emergency Department: What to Expect
The emergency department of My Canadian Pharmacy is here when you or someone you love needs us – – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Each year we provide quality immediate health services to more than 50,000 patients.
Incoming patients are assessed as to the severity of their condition and treated accordingly. Our goal is to treat every one of our patients quickly and compassionately. While you are waiting, notify relatives and plan your needs for the following days. You will be informed of the patient’s condition and outlook as soon as possible.
The My Canadian Pharmacy Emergency Department is equipped and staffed to respond to exceptionally serious situations so the charges are naturally greater that doctor’s offices or clinics. Insurance, Medicare or Medicaid coverage depends on the treatment received. Please ask about payment schedules. Your bill will itemize charges like lab tests, x-rays, medications and materials. You may receive additional billings from your family doctor and other specialists involved. Specialists (surgeons, radiologists) are not employed or compensated by the hospital.
