Emergency Services

In today's world, it may be easy to forget that heart attacks, strokes and other medical emergencies happen every day. But they do. Every 40 seconds, someone in the U.S. has a heart attack, according to CDC data.

Our Emergency Department is open and prepared to care for you safely, during the COVID-19 pandemic and always. Please do not delay care.

Keeping You Safe and Your Loved Ones Safe.

We are taking extra steps to provide you the healthcare services you need in a safe environment. You’ll notice some changes in how we provide care and service to our patients, visitors and community members:

  • We screen every person who comes into our hospital and emergency room, including staff members. This includes screening for symptoms of respiratory infection (fever, cough, shortness of breath) and checking temperatures, which are taken using no-contact infrared thermometers.
  • Cloth masks are acceptable, and we will provide masks if you do not have your own.
  • We have reconfigured our hospital to keep people with COVID-19 or related symptoms in separate, designated areas and units.
  • We are using advanced technology to achieve deep-cleaning multiple times a day, following rigorous cleaning and disinfecting protocols.
  • Please be assured that our medical team has received extensive training regarding proper COVID-19 precautions and are provided with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), including masks, face shields and gowns. We regularly monitor the latest guidance from the CDC and evolve our policies and procedures to protect our team and serve you.
  • In accordance with CDC and local recommendations, visitors to Chino Valley Medical Center are still limited to ensure your safety and the safety of others.
Geriatric Emergency Department Accreditation (GEDA)

At Chino Valley Medical Center, seniors have earned a little extra consideration, and we are honored to care for the older adults of Chino.

Chino Valley Medical Center earned the Geriatric Emergency Department Accreditation (GEDA) recognizing emergency departments that go above and beyond to provide excellent care for older adults. The GEDA program is the culmination of years of progress in emergency care of older adults. In 2014, four geriatric focused organizations developed and released geriatric ED guidelines. These guidelines recommended measures ranging from adding geriatric-friendly equipment to specialized staff to more routine screening for delirium, dementia, and fall risk, among other vulnerabilities.

The voluntary GEDA program provides specific criteria and goals for emergency clinicians and administrators to target. A Geriatric Accredited emergency department must incorporate selected best practices, as well as provide inter-disciplinary geriatric education, and have geriatric appropriate equipment and supplies available.

At the Chino Valley Medical Center emergency department, we’ll see you quickly, and we take time to evaluate your condition and develop the best plan of care for you. With our geriatric trained Emergency Nurses, our collaborative ER team is trained to identify older adults that need extra support during and after their hospitalization.

In addition, we work closely with you to manage your long-term health and wellness. Our clinicians develop a discharge plan with you and your family to help you manage your future healthcare needs.

Our accredited senior Emergency Department features an atmosphere to enhance safety and comfort. During your stay, you can expect the following:

  • Educated Geriatric Emergency Nurses

  • Easy-to-read signs and clocks

  • Pressure reducing mattresses

  • Handrails

  • Extra seating for family
