Welcome to Emergency Services at Littleton Regional Hospital. Emergency Services at LRH encompasses so much more than the classic "ER". We are an integrated team providing urgent or emergent care to critically ill and/or seriously injured persons. LRH provides a valuable service to the community and region, offering high-quality care to patients 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The Emergency Department team provides expert emergency care to over 9,000 adult and pediatric patients annually.
Board certified Emergency physicians oversee patient care, along with the treatment team that consists of emergency registered nurses, paramedics and health unit coordinators. Additional expert consultation is readily available to the Emergency Physicians as needed in virtually all medical and surgical specialties here at LRH and at a nearby level one trauma center.
Emergency nurses working along side Paramedics provide the backbone of the team at LRH's Emergency Department providing high quality, patient and family centered, compassionate emergency care.
The Emergency Department continually seeks opportunities to invite nursing students for clinical rotations in the Emergency Department setting. In 2008 we began a nursing externship program that helps new graduate nurses and nurses who have no experience working in an emergency department become skilled in this highly variable setting. The Emergency Department is also a teaching ground for all levels of emergency medical technicians.
All of the Emergency Department's internal entrances are secure; all employees use a pass card to enter and visitors need to be buzzed in, enhancing privacy and security for patients, their families and our staff.
Littleton Regional Hospital is located 20 minutes or less from nearly all of the communities we serve. We can stabilize your condition and if necessary admit you to the hospital or transport you to a tertiary care center in a timely, caring manner, using a variety of transportation methods including ambulance and air transport.
