Hilton Head Hospital and Coastal Carolina Hospital recently began offering InQuickER, an emergency room service that allows consumers to complete an online form and hold a place at the emergency room. Cost is $9.99. Patients using InQuickER should be seen by a health professional in the emergency room within 15 minutes or the fee will be refunded. InQuickER is for individuals who have non-life threatening medical conditions. If the projected treatment time changes due to an influx of patients requiring priority treatment, the user will be notified and given an alternate time or a refund. Also, Coastal Carolina Hospital recently introduced a way for patients to find out emergency room wait times by going to www.coastalhospital.com and checking the average door-to-bed wait time. Door-to-bed wait time is the average time a patient waits to be escorted to a bed from the time they arrive in the ER.
