Experience a Shorter ER Wait-Time at Carthage Area Hospital
(April 16, 2013) Carthage, NY
 – 
 
Carthage Area Hospital’s Emergency Room has made a
determined effort to shorten the length of time a patient waits to be seen for emergent &non-emergent care.Improving the overall patient experience is essential, Sue Kennedy, CAH ER  Nu
rse Manager said. “We are dedicated in making sure people aren’t waiting for an
extended amount of time. Our staff regularly checks on patients in the waiting area until
they are seen by a provider.”There’s also been implementation of a “Fast
-
Track,” system within the hospital’s
Emergency Room. Fast-
Track’s purpose is to treat patients with minor ailments and
expedite care. This alleviates the patient load of the physicians. For a patient to qualifyfor Fast-Track, a RN triage nurse will assess the patient to determine whether or not they present symptoms that require emergent or non-emergent care.
A Physician’s Assistant
 (PA) is staffed to assist with this system.
The PA’s include 3 Fort Drum Active Duty
Soldiers (Sabrina Lambert, PA, James Brumley, PA, and Martin Stewart, PA) and 2Retired Fort Drum Soldiers (George DeVita, PA and Wade Swatsworth, PA).The Carthage Area Hospital ER is a Level III Emergency Department and provides care to approximately 15,000 people of all ages each year, 24/7. The EmergencyDepartment stabilizes emergency medical conditions by providing emergent and non-emergent treatments to patients of all ages. Emergent medical conditions are evaluated,treated, and stabilized prior to admission, transfer, or discharge. There are on-call providers available to treat patients that require specialty care. Referrals to communityservices and specialty services are based on patients need and completed prior todischarge.For fast & efficient Emergency Care, visit the Carthage Area Hospital ER at 1001West St. Carthage, NY.###
