    When you are in need of emergency medical services, time is the biggest factor to consider when seeking care. At MountainView Hospital, we understand that time is extremely valuable to your recovery from serious medical conditions.

    We also work within the Sunrise Health Hospital Network, which provides superior medical care throughout the Las Vegas area so that you can always have easy access to the care you need. The emergency facilities at our hospital are expanded and include 23 private beds, advanced digital imaging equipment, “Fast Track” Triage, and easy access through a dedicated ER entrance.

    Another advantage of the Emergency Department at MountainView Hospital in Las Vegas is easy check-in and wait time updates with the iTriage app for smart devices. You can also get ER wait times for the entire Sunrise Health Network by texting ER to 23000 or by calling our Consult-A-Nurse healthcare referral line at (702) 233-5474.

    Common Workplace Injuries That Could Land You in the ER

    Last updated 12 months ago

    Almost all work environments can present hazards that may lead to injury or illness, and these ailments may require a trip to the emergency room if proper precautions are not taken to avoid them. When emergency medical situations do arise at work, you can rely on the ER at MountainView Hospital  to provide rapid, accurate care that will help you get back on your feet. However, we do encourage you to follow safe practices in the workplace so that you don’t have to deal with these serious work-related injuries.

    If you work in food service, construction, or retail, you may frequently work with sharp tools that could easily cause serious cuts if proper safety measures are not taken. To prevent deep lacerations on the job, be sure to wear all recommended safety equipment and dedicate your full attention to any task requiring the use of sharp objects.

    While minor burns will be easily treatable with a first-aid kit, large second degree burns and all third degree burns require immediate medical treatment. You can identify a serious burn by severe blistering, exposure of soft tissue or even bone, and charred skin. Use of proper clothing and recommended safety measures will help you prevent burns in potentially dangerous work environments where heat or harmful chemicals are present.

    Spinal Injuries
    Office environments may not seem like a common place of injury, but a typical desk job can severely damage your spine. The pressure of sitting down all day can make your spine more susceptible to injuries from daily activities or cause direct damage resulting in severe pain and immobility.

    If you have sustained an injury of this nature on the job, you can get up-to-date wait times and check in at the ER at Mountain View Hospital Las Vegas with our iTriage app for your smart device. You can also contact us through our Consult-A-Nurse healthcare referral line at (702) 233-5474.

    Reasons to Have Your Baby at MountainView Hospital

    Last updated 12 months ago

    As you prepare to welcome your new baby into the world, one of the most important decisions in planning your baby’s birth is choosing a hospital where you can deliver. If you are a resident of the northwest Las Vegas area, MountainView Hospital is an excellent choice for a number of reasons, including those discussed in further detail below.

    Easy access to childbirth classes
    Childbirth classes can help you prepare for the physical challenges of labor and delivery, get your home ready for your newborn, and learn the basics of infant care—including breastfeeding. At Mountain View Hospital, we offer childbirth classes throughout each month along with tours of our Women’s Center to help you feel prepared for parenthood.

    Private birthing suites
    Your labor and delivery will be a private, intimate experience in our spacious patient suites, which are equipped with the latest security technology, wireless Internet access, and gourmet room service. While you enjoy private accommodations during labor, delivery, and postpartum care, you will be attended to by a highly experienced staff of specialists and nurses.

    Family-friendly care 
    We understand that childbirth is a family experience, so our facilities are welcoming to your significant other and your family members. Overnight accommodations are readily available for your partner, and every aspect of the birthing process is designed to be family-centered.

    Level-II Intensive Care Nursery 
    Should your baby require intensive care after delivery, you can feel comfort knowing that our facilities are equipped with an eight-bed Level-II Intensive Care Nursery staffed by extensively trained nurses and physicians.

    If you want to schedule a tour of our Women’s Center for an even closer look at the technology and services we provide at MountainView Hospital, call our Consult-A-Nurse healthcare referral line at (702) 233-5474. You can also visit us on the Web to see a complete schedule of our upcoming childbirth and newborn care classes.

    Avoiding Upper Body Injuries in the Workplace

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Jobs that involve frequent power tool use can lead to serious injuries of the hand or wrist that may require long-term care for pain management and recovery. Repetitive stress injuries could also lead to injuries such as carpal tunnel, but this is more likely related to a genetic predisposition to this condition.

    This video explains upper body injuries in more detail along with the treatment options for these injuries. If you do need orthopedic care for your hand or wrist, you should see an orthopedic surgeon for a complete look at your options for treatment. While surgery may be an option, the surgeon will likely explore conservative treatment options first, because these can typically offer sufficient relief.

    If you are in search of an orthopedic surgeon specializing in the type of injury you have sustained, contact MountainView Hospital at our Consult-A-Nurse healthcare referral line by calling (702) 233-5474. You can also explore all of the orthopedic and emergency services offered at our hospital by visiting our website.
