Emergency Services includes physicians, RNs, LPNs, techs, unit secretaries, CNAs and patient liaisons. It is also composed of specific service areas, including the Transfer Center, Clinical Decision Unit and the Emergency Department. These three units work together closely to provide quality patient care and outcomes.
The Transfer Center has 24-7 RN coverage to ensure safe, appropriate and efficient patient admissions and transfers in and out of Cheyenne Regional Medical Center.
At least one RN and one CNA also staff the Clinical Decision Unit at all times, making sure each patient receives a thorough assessment and treatment while maintaining a safe and supportive environment.
Staff versatility is essential in Emergency Services. On any given day, the same nurse could potentially triage patients, serve as a primary nurse for a Level 1 trauma, care for an elderly patient struggling with dementia and remove stitches from the forehead on a toddler.
The Emergency Services staff at Cheyenne Regional Medical Center takes pride in being a “Jack of all Trades,” while also ensuring that compassionate and quality care is provided to each and every patient.
