Wait at home, not in the ER waiting room
When you need non-life-threatening emergency room care in Boston, Tufts Medical Center's Department of Emergency Medicine allows you to check-in for an estimated treatment time so that you can wait at home instead of in a Boston ER waiting room.
If you have a minor emergency, please use the tool below to select the time you would like to come in to our ER for treatment. Please do not use this feature in case of a major emergency. If you are in doubt about the severity of your condition, you should always seek immediate care by going to the nearest emergency department or calling 911. Patients with emergent, life-threatening conditions will always be seen first. If this happens when you arrive, we'll work quickly to get you in as soon as possible.
97% of patients who have answered our survey would recommend the Tufts Medical Center ER and online estimated check-in tool. Read patient quotes about our service >
