All patients visiting the emergency centre maybe experiencing serious illness or injury in various degrees, an international triage system is used to ensure that patients with life-threatening and severe conditions must be treated first and is determined by a system called Triage.

Triage, from the French word “trier”, literally means: “to sort”. The aim is to bring “the greatest good to the greatest number of people” – this is achieved through prioritising limited resources to achieve the greatest possible benefit. Patients are sorted with a scientific triage scale in order of urgency - the end result is that the patient with the greatest need is helped first.
