It is an observational study, monocentric, prospective. This study consists in collecting data from an anonymized questioner given to patients presenting themselves at the emergency department of Clermont-Ferrand University Hospital. Answers to the questions will not change the patient's management. The questioner, containing 17 questions, requires answering "yes" or "no" by ticking boxes, or even specify when it is stipulated. This questionnaire will be given to the patient after his registration, and filled by the latter in the waiting room, pending medical care. Answering the questionnaire will take between 5 to 10 minutes. The data is anonymous.
The patient arrives at the emergency department and registers at the entrance desks where a paper and computer file is created. Then, the Reception and Orientation Nurse takes care of the patient by welcoming him in the reception box, she realizes the taking of the hemodynamics constants, the collection of the reason of consultation with the grievances of the patient. During this phase, patient will be inform of the completion of this study and asked to participate in this study. If the patient agrees to participate, an anonymized questioner will be provided and explained by one of the investigating physicians or associated partners.

The objective of this research will be to assess, in patients presenting in an emergency department, the prior consultation of medical information on a website, the impact on the emergency consultation decision and the relevance of this consultation.
- Rate of justified nature of the consultation between patient who did consult a website before the emergency room and those who didn't. [ Time Frame: at day 1 ]
The comparison between the justification (or not) of the transition to adult emergencies and the consultation of an upstream website will be done using the Chi2 test (or Fisher's exact test if applicable).
The search for criteria related to the justified nature of this emergency procedure will be done with the Chi2 test (or Fisher's exact test if applicable) for the categorical data and with the Student's test (or Mann and Whitney test if not normally distributed) for continuous data.
- Prevalence of Internet consultation among patients admitted to emergency room [ Time Frame: at day 1 ]The rate of consultation of a website before the emergency room, will be expressed as a percentage with its 95% confidence interval
- The rate of justified consultation [ Time Frame: at day 1 ]The rate of justified consultation to emergency department, will be expressed as a percentage with its 95% confidence interval.
- Risk factors related to consultation of a website medical information prior to the transition to adult emergencies. [ Time Frame: at day 1 ]The comparison between patients who visited a medical information website (vs those who did not consult the internet) before the emergency department visit will be done using the same methods as for the analysis of the main criterion.
