Care and Treatment for Emergencies


Registration happens in two parts. First, you will meet with the Patient Access Representative (Registrar) in the registration area at the rear of the waiting room for "Quick Reg" (registration), which takes only a few minutes.

Our helpful Patient Access Representatives are located in the lobby. Upon arrival, you will meet with them for "Quick Reg," the first part of patient registration.

You will be asked the following questions:

  • Patient name
  • Gender
  • Date of birth
  • Mailing address
  • Name of primary care doctor for notification
  • Chief complaint (medical reason[s] for your visit to the Emergency Department)

Photo identification will be requested at this time. If you have a Stanford Medical ID card, please present it during registration. We do not collect insurance information at this time.

After you have been seen by the doctor and have been assigned a bed, a Patient Access Representative in a blue blazer will come to your bedside to complete the registration process.
