How is it organized?
After discussion with the doctor, you may have to remain in the Observation Unit in adult emergencies if your condition requires a specialist examination or monitoring for 12 to 24 hours.
Otherwise, there are two possibilities:
- you return home with a prescription and, if required, an outpatient follow-up plan; the doctor will compile a report for your general practitioner
- you are transferred to the operating theatre, intensive care, another HUG division or another hospital.
