SRMC New ER Line
Southside Regional Medical Center - New Phone Number for EMS Reports
Wanted to make EVERYONE aware of a change in communicating to SRMC ER from the field. We now have a dedicated telephone line to our ER for patient reports. The NEW number is 804-765-5625. If you use the HEAR radio, please continue to do that. You can start using this new number on Friday July 25, 2014. Please disregard any other numbers you may have for calling in reports after Friday July 25, 2014.
The old number was going directly to the charge nurse. This process was creating issues where if the charge nurse was registering a patient and the charge nurse received a call from EMS, the charge nurse was not able to take a report at that time or may not have been able to answer the call.
ODEMSA Announces Regional Award Winners
We are pleased and very proud to announce the winners of our 2014 Regional Award Program. The winners were honored at the ODEMSA Regional EMS Picnic and Awards Ceremony that was held at Pocahontas State Park July 12, 2014.
It was certainly inspiring to see so many amazing individuals and agencies, that are dedicated to providing the highest level of care in their communities, at the awards gathering. "Winners are recognized, by their peers, for their exceptional contributions made to the Virginia EMS system. The awards are a small token of appreciation for all that they do to enhance prehospital patient care in the region", commented ODEMSA Executive Director Heidi Hooker, during the ceremony. ODEMSA is proud to honor our EMS practitioners throughout our region for providing the highest quality prehospital care.
