Hello, what do you call the British A & E or the American Emergency Department in hospitals? Is that the медпункт? Or is медпункт something different? Thanks.

    Может, ещё "травмпункт"?

    Медпункт is not really A & E, it is a small and very basic medical institution - like a nurse's room at a school or a medical unit in a village which is too small to have a proper hospital or something like that.

    I'm not sure. Emergency Departments fitted out with a various of life-saving equipment, so it doesn't matter, if the patient has just dislocated leg, delivery or heart attack. There are full resuscitation service on duty as well, as nurses team.
    As for "травмпункт" they are typicaly limited by bathing, clay & x-ray. But I assume, that variety of operations depends on the particular office.
