Hardin Memorial doctors and nurses connect with each other and respond to alarms more quickly.
Hardin Memorial Hospital is a not-for-profit, 300-bed acute care hospital in Elizabethtown, Kentucky. With a staff of medical professionals covering over 30 specialties, the hospital serves nearly 300,000 patients from a 10-county area every year. The Emergency Department sees more than 50,000 patients annually, and outpatient services have grown to more than 35 locations.
Like doctors and nurses at many hospitals, caregivers at Hardin Memorial were struggling to connect with one another. When a nurse paged a doctor, the doctor returned the call to a Unit Secretary, who didn’t know which nurse had called or why. The search to locate the right person was consuming valuable time and resources. And this was just one of the communication challenges they were facing.
