When you enter the Emergency Department, a nurse will determine the complexity of your condition. If your illness or injury is minor but still requires prompt care, you will be treated in the Fast Track area. Fast Track is staffed by nurse practitioners under the supervision of Emergency Department physicians. They specialize in treating patients with less complex cases, allowing the main Emergency Department area to focus on the more complex conditions, resulting in shorter wait times.
Fast Track is part of the Emergency Department and therefore is billed as an emergency visit.
