Blue Hill Memorial Hospital ER Staff Meets with First Responders 

Providing the best quality service for patients.That was the topic of a meeting at the Blue Hill Memorial Hospital Friday.Members of the ER met with area emergency responders.Staff at the hospital say it’s important to have good communication between the first responders so they can provide the best care to their patients.They also say healthcare partnerships are essential for rural areas.Something else, being discussed at the meeting was educational sessions folks would like to have offered.Those in attendance say they want to make sure they are all working together and helping each other out.” The best care, the most important care for people is the care delivered close to home. And when they enter the medical system there’s a reason they call themselves first responders. They’re the people that are on the scene when these people have the greatest need. And that really needs to be coordinated for things to work best because there could be many steps along the way.”They hope to have meetings like this more often and evaluate what is and is not working.
