Stand-alone emergency departments have similar equipment as hospital emergency departments but are often miles away from main hospitals. They may look like urgent care centers, but freestanding EDs can take more severe cases. Freestanding emergency rooms are opened either separately or as an alliance with physicians and hospitals.
Freestanding emergency rooms serve the public by helping to ease overcrowding at hospital-based emergency departments and meet medical emergency needs. Many people think a freestanding ER is more similar to a 24-hour clinic or urgent care center than a hospital-based emergency room.
Through new laws, the State of Texas is helping to change that misconception and make the distinction between urgent care centers and freestanding EDs clearer. The Texas Health and Safety Code require all freestanding emergency rooms to be licensed by the Department of State Health Services. Licensed centers are the only freestanding facilities not owned or operated by a hospital that can advertise services using terms such as "emergency" or "ER." Therefore, an urgent care center or 24-hour clinic currently cannot use signage advertising emergency care unless that facility is licensed by the state as a freestanding ER.
As of September 1, 2012, the state of Texas also requires all freestanding emergency rooms to be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. A freestanding emergency room must be equipped and staffed to perform laboratory testing and radiology services, and must keep age-appropriate medical equipment and supplies needed for emergency treatment on hand, ready for use at all times.
