At night, at weekends or on public holidays, dial 141 to find out which doctors and pharmacies are on duty or open in Monaco.
The SMUR (Mobile Emergency Unit), which is part of the Accident & Emergency Department, works closely with the Monaco Fire Department. Its role is to provide medical treatment to patients in vital distress outside the hospital.
In principle, patients are seen on a first come, first served basis, but this general rule may be set aside if a patient arrives requiring immediate medical attention.
The time necessary for examinations and consultations may lengthen your stay in A&E.
The staff will keep you and the persons accompanying you informed.
Waiting times always appear too long, but it is important to remember that the staff do everything they can to keep them as short as possible, with the priority always being patient safety.
After receiving initial treatment, your doctor will inform you of the results of the medical assessment and may decide to keep you in hospital.
You will be accompanied to the department that will be treating you. If the department does not have a room available for you immediately or if you are likely to be in hospital for less than 24 hours, you will be temporarily accommodated in the A&E Department’s Short Term Hospitalisation Unit.
When you leave the hospital, the healthcare team will provide you with useful information and documents for treatment and follow-up care (prescriptions, certificates, appointments for consultations, etc.).
We recommend you attend any appointments. They are necessary for monitoring your state of health.
When a minor is admitted to Accident & Emergency, he or she may only be discharged with the consent of a parent or legal guardian.
