Here are some confirmations Canadian government translations:

"Les responsables du régime n'accordent pas leur consentement si le service hospitalier en question est offert au Québec ou au Canada."

"Consent is not given if the hospital service is
available in Quebec or elsewhere in Canada."
http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/medicare/que-e.htm

"Lorsque le service d'urgence d'un hôpital reçoit des aînés, il peut déterminer si ceux-ci présentent de grands risques de déclin fonctionnel ou d'autres problèmes de santé."
http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/francais/archives/communiques/1998/98...


"Visits to emergency departments provide an opportunity to identify seniors who are at high risk of functional decline and other adverse outcomes. "
http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/english/archives/releases/1998/9859bk...

N.B.: "Emergency unit" would be "unité d'urgence" and "emergency room" would be "salle d'urgence".

Hope this helps.

accident & emergency unit ; (A&E Unit) ; AEU


Explanation:
Hello again,

I would go along with Louise's (Dauphine's) answer for the first term, "hospital service". However, with regard to the second term, if your context is UK, then such departments of hospitals are much more commnly referred to (nowadays) in one of the above ways. In the past, such department/units were referred to as "Casualty" although this term would now appear to apply for less serious injury. See the following for confirmation.

That said, passing refernce is made to "department" once the term AEU has been applied and "depratment" is used in one case, altho' the websearch showed this to be used less often in the UK. All depends who your aduience is :

MEHRA, M. ; O’NEILL, V.M. ; GROVES, A.
OBJECTIVE: To demonstrate the impact of a dedicated Paediatrics Accident and
Emergency Unit (PAEU) , which opened in March 1999, on the number of acute paediatric
admissions.
DESIGN: Retrospective data analysis of paediatric accident and emergency attendances
And paediatric admissions at St.Peter’s Hospital, a district general hospital in Surrey

ACCIDENT AND EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT
The Department provides a full 24 hour service. All soft tissue and bony trauma that does not require inpatient care is dealt with in the department as well as minor head injuries which need admission for 24 hour observation. All Orthpaedic trauma requiring inpatient care, including fractured neck of femur, is dealt with at Poole General Hospital.
Eye injuries should be referred to the Casualty Department at RVH Westbourne. This Department is open from 8.00 am - 12.30 pm and 1.30 pm - 4.30 pm, Monday to Friday. Outside these hours patients will be seen but GPs/patients are asked to telephone the Hospital first so that the patient is expected.
CONSULTANT: MR K HASSAN, FRCS, FAEM
SECRETARIAT: Miss Becky Irvine
Tel: 01202 704062
Fax: 01202 704734
CLINICS: Three outpatient clinics are held each week:
Monday 9.00 am - 12.30 pm
Wednesday 9.00 am - 11.00 am
Friday 9.00 am - 12.00 noon
(Mr Reichl, A&E Consultant Poole)
All clinics specialise in soft tissue problems and
hand injuries.
Except during annual leave periods, all patients
are seen by the Consultant.
REFERRAL TO A&E: In general, only when the patient's condition
requires assessment and possible intervention
within the next 24 hours.
All patients with recent trauma will be seen and assessed in the A&E Department. Urgent medical and surgical, etc, problems should be
referred directly to the speciality.
All other less immediately urgent patients should receive their hospital assessment in one of our outpatient clinics.
