Mercy's E.D. Team
Mercy emergency physicians and nurses go well beyond being on hand 24
hours a day to treat unexpected illnesses and injuries. Mercy ED doctors
are board certified by the American College
of Emergency Physicians as emergency medicine specialists. Each ED
nurse is trauma certified. Each member of the Emergency Team holds Advanced
Cardiac Life Support and Pediatric Advanced Life Support certifications.
The state of Oregon recognized the high quality of emergency care being
provided at Mercy by awarding the medical center status as a Level III
trauma center. According to the Oregon Health Division's trauma program
manager, "Designation as a Level III trauma center indicates that
Mercy surgeons and emergency room doctors and nurses provide exceptional
care and are very well qualified to stabilize and treat trauma patients."
