Our ER wait times represent the time it takes for you to see a qualified medical professional, including Doctors of Medicine (MD), Doctors of Osteopathy (DO), Physicians Assistants (PA) and Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioners (ARNP). As soon as our patients are triaged upon arrival, they are seen by one of these quality medical professionals in priority order based on the reason for the visit and chief presenting complaints. We also strive to make urgent care service easier to obtain by offering emergency room wait times online and through ER wait time text messaging. The ER wait times at Los Robles Hospital & Medical Center represent a four-hour rolling average that is updated every 30 minutes.

The best way to determine if you require immediate or urgent care services with our hospital is to understand what constitutes a medical emergency. Some of the symptoms that designate a medical emergency include:

  • Severe lacerations or puncture wounds
  • Sudden dizziness or vertigo
  • Extreme nausea with or without vomiting
  • Uncontrolled vomiting or diarrhea
  • Injuries to the head, neck, or spine
  • Abdominal pain
  • Chest pain or tightness that exceeds two minutes
  • Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
  • Changes in vision, speech, or other signs of stroke

You shouldn’t have to wait to receive the immediate medical care you need during an emergency—and at Los Robles Hospital & Medical Center, you don’t have to. You can text “ER” to 23000 to gain access to our ER wait times; however, if you are experiencing a medical emergency, call 911 immediately.

What It Means to Be a Level II Trauma Center

Los-Robles-Trauma-Center-Banner

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly 45 million individuals in the United States do not have access to a Level I or II trauma center within one hour travel radius. To put that into perspective, 45 million individuals is equivalent to the populations of Arizona, New Mexico, Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas, and Alabama combined! Fortunately for Thousand Oaks residents, Los Robles Hospital & Medical Center is home to the only Level II trauma center in East Ventura County.

A trauma center is a hospital or emergency room that has additional equipment and medical resources to care for severely injured patients. These centers are classified as Level I, II, III, or IV. The emergency room at Los Robles Hospital & Medical Center is fully equipped to provide experienced and specialized treatment to patients suffering from traumatic injuries using a multidisciplinary approach. Our 24/7 trauma team works in conjunction with the on-site emergency medical staff (EMS) team to ensure that all treatments are initiated as quickly as possible—whether our patients arrive by ambulance or helicopter.

In addition to providing unmatched urgent care services in our trauma center, Los Robles Hospital & Medical Center is the only facility in the state certified by both Ventura County and Los Angeles as a STEMI-designated heart attack center for rapid heart attack response care. We are also the only nationally accredited Chest Pain Center in East Ventura County.

Whether you are suffering from a sprained wrist, severe laceration, flu symptoms, or possible signs of a heart attack or stroke, Los Robles Hospital & Medical Center is here to help. We offer the highest quality of emergency care for a wide variety of medical conditions and injuries. Let us provide you and your family with the medical attention you need. (805) 497-2727
