EAU is a short-stay assessment unit and length of stay can be as little as four to six hours prior to discharge home or transfer to a ward, or as long as two to five days if a patient is acutely unwell or requires transfer to a specialist ward.
The Emergency Assessment Unit (EAU) at Yeovil Hospital is located on level 4 and has five bays and four side rooms.
EAU has a matron, senior sister, ward sisters, registered nurses, assistant practitioners, healthcare assistants, ward receptionists and housekeepers.
Patients are seen by one of our ward consultants; and a member of the medical team will review and monitor your care daily.
If you have any questions during your stay, please ask any member of staff and they will be happy to help you.
Visiting times: Visitors are welcome between 10am to 8pm seven days a week.
