Cay Hill - St. Maarten Medical Center (SMMC) recently launched a video which was produced for the SMMC ER Department titled: “When should you visit the Emergency Room (ER) of the SMMC?”
The animated video is aimed at educating patients and the general public about when to visit the SMMC’s ER (e.g. what medical conditions are deemed an emergency and warrants a visit to the ER) and what conditions are deemed non-emergency and the patient should visit their family doctor instead. The video also outlines the procedure at the ER from check-in, triage examination by a triage nurse, assignment of colored wrist indicating a patient’s emergency level, checking up on an ER patient every 30 minutes by a triage nurse and the ER opening hours.
The ER video is a result of an extensive cooperation between SMMC's ER Department and the Communication Department over the past 2 months and all are very satisfied with the end result which will be communicated to the general public via SMMC’s website, social media channels, newsletter, in-house TV screens and at the various family doctor’s TV screens.
