Emergency Room care at WCMH-A has always been exceptional and with the introduction of eER that exceptional care has been enhanced. eER is a way to connect with the ER doctors and nurses in Sioux Falls. With just a push of a button you have instant visual contact with the McKennan emergency room. Not only do they give advice or a second opinion when needed, the nurses there take care of much of the paper work and phone calls that the nurses have to do here when caring for an emergency patient. This frees up the on site nurse to be at the patient’s side where they truly need to be to take care of the physical needs of that patient. Some of the paperwork and calling they do for us – recording of the incident, meds given, times. They can all in our lab people, our radiology people. They can set up transport for the patient if further care is needed. They can write the doctors orders down for us, and then fax them to us to be part of that patient’s chart. These were all the little things that our nurses here had to do before, taking precious minutes away from patient care.
