NEW EMS ROOM IS OPENED
We have officially opened the new EMS Charting room, located in the corridor inside the EMS entrance. Welcome to your new EMS home in the ED! There are cookies and popcorn to celebrate this today! We are working to stock the supplies and label the cabinets. The water cooler and refrigerator should be in there now. There will also be bulletin boards and files put into the room for better communication.
Just a reminder - I sent out information last week but there were some that did not get the message about the EMS entrance. Please make sure that your membership is aware of the temporary changes.
University Hospital Expansion
Underground Work Between the EMS ED Entrance and Lee Street Starting December 8th and continuing for 4 weeks, the Hospital Expansion Project will begin underground work in the ambulance unloading area between the Emergency Department and Lee Street. During the first two weeks, 3-4 EMS parking spots will be captured to allow for the drilling and excavation equipment to operate. During this time we will be extending the EMS parking area into the near lane of Lee Street to recover those lost spaces. Follow up work will take place over the following two weeks in a much reduced footprint.
