The Adult Emergency Department was established at the University Hospital Motol on January 1, 1999. Before that, these activities had been carried out by the Medical Emergency Service of the capital city of Prague. This department provides such kind of services, which are being called Notfallaufnahme, Urgences, Emergency, etc abroad. Such departments are common mainly in the USA and other English speaking countries. These departments can also be found in most large European hospitals. We gained experience from the Netherlands and Belgium.
