Clinical Support: Admissions & Transfers
The Admissions and Transfers department at St. Mary's is the coordination center for admissions to the hospital and transfers within the hospital.
Registered Nurses strive to make the process of admitting a patient, a simple and stress-free process for physicians, transferring hospital personnel and staff within the various departments in our own facility.
With one phone call, a physician can call with pertinent information and also give admitting orders. With one page, the Emergency Department staff know they will receive a call with a bed assignment as soon as a bed is available. With one fax, the Operating room and Recovery Room will receive bed assignments as beds are available on the surgery units.
Additionally, our nurses work closely with Charge Nurses of the units, physicians and Environmental Services to coordinate and implement procedures during times of high census or patient influx.
