Emergency Department Updates
Construction changes are coming to the Hartford Hospital Emergency Department! Starting on Tuesday, November 15, 2011 and continuing through 2012, there will be construction to the Ambulance, Ambulatory and EMS Room Entrances.
Once construction is completed, there will be a new expanded EMS room and a new storage location for EMS equipment.
The construction will be done in a number of phases in order to keep the impact to our patients and to EMS at a minimum. There will, however, be an impact on the number of parking spaces available immediately in front of the Emergency Department. We will be sending out weekly announcements regarding the location of the construction and impact that it will have on EMS.
Part of the changes in the ED relate to how EMS personnel exchange linens. We have begun using the “Alex” linen system. Every EMS service that comes to Hartford Hospital should have a key to access new linens. If you have questions or concerns, contact us.
We also have a number of unclaimed backboards. If you dropped one off with a patient, and didn't get a chance to pick it back up, give our main office a call and we might be able to locate it and arrange transport back home.
