Hospi­tal ac­cess

Manawatu Guardian - - IN BRIEF -

Pub­lic ac­cess to Palmerston North Hospi­tal’s Emer­gency De­part­ment (ED) will re­turn to the reg­u­lar en­trance from 10am next Tues­day Au­gust 14.

From Tues­day morn­ing the pub­lic is asked to use the en­trance to the left of the main hospi­tal en­trance if they are want­ing to ac­cess ED.

The en­trance re­con­struc­tion of the en­trance is part of a staged re­fur­bish­ment of the ED that will in­clude a more wel­com­ing re­cep­tion and wait­ing area, triage rooms to al­low pa­tients to be as­sessed in pri­vate, and im­proved fa­cil­i­ties for rel­a­tives of crit­i­cally ill pa­tients.
