Humboldt General's Emergency Department Returns Home

    The Emergency Department at Humboldt General Hospital was back in its original location as of Tuesday morning, August 30. 
    Patients should now access the ER via Mizpah Street, following the hospital's original signs for parking and admittance.
    Those who experience extreme difficulty accessing the original location once on campus should call 911 and the hospital's EMS personnel will lend assistance.
    The ER moved from its current location to the hospital's Physical Therapy Department on July 18 so that construction crews could complete an extensive remodel of the ER space.
    Tuesday morning, staff members and patients were back home in the beautiful new quarters with a long list of improvements and upgrades.
    Humboldt General Hospital Inpatient Manager Jacqueline Dalley said the switchover was made possible by the hospital's nightshift nurses who "really pitched in and did the majority of the move."     Dalley said by the time she arrived at 5 a.m., the bulk of the equipment and furniture had been moved over. "We've just spent the morning organizing," she said. 
    Dalley said while the ER's temporary quarters were difficult at times to work in, she praised all ER team members for their skill and professionalism amid the adverse circumstances. "As a group they did great," she said.
    The new and improved ER includes a more private check-in area as well as curtained glass sliding doors on rooms in order to heighten patient privacy. The nurses' station also has been moved and remodeled in order to allow for better patient monitoring and a more commodious and efficient work environment.
    The Emergency Department also now connects to the new physician clinics as well as the hospital's administrative offices through its own enclosed lobby. This much-improved emergency waiting area will serve our community well into the future.
    As always, the Emergency Department is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
    For minor accidents and injuries, patients are encouraged to visit Humboldt General Hospital's Walk-In Clinic, located in Suite C of the newly finished medical office building. Hours are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. For more information on The Walk-In Clinic, please call (775) 625-7000. 
    For more information about the Emergency Department, please call Humboldt General Hospital at (775) 623-5222, ext. 140.
