What Happens if You Leave ER without being Seen?

People check-in ER and leave before a physician can see them for many reasons.

Some people leave after the nurse’s triage, convinced that they are already feeling better or that their condition is not that serious. When a nurse tells you that your condition is not urgent, this still doesn’t mean you should leave the emergency room without seeing a physician. The purpose of the ER triage is to assign priority, so you should stay and wait for your treatment.

Leaving ER before you see a physician is not an only health risk. Leaving the emergency room unseen can also compromise your health insurance, so it is wise to wait for a physician to attend to you.

Devoted Guardians'
Response to COVID-19

Devoted Guardians is actively monitoring the progression of the coronavirus, COVID-19, to ensure that we have the most accurate and latest information on the threat of the virus. As you know, this situation continues to develop rapidly as new cases are identified in our communities and our protocols will be adjusted as needed.

While most cases of COVID-19 are mild, causing only fever and cough, a very small percentage of cases become severe and may progress particularly in the elderly and people with underlying medical conditions. Because this is the primary population that Devoted Guardians serves, we understand your concerns and want to share with you how our organization is responding to the threat of COVID-19.

We are following updates and procedures from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) State Department of Health, local and county authorities, the Home Care Association of America and other agencies and resources. Our response and plans may adjust according to the recommendations from these organizations.
