New Murray Bridge Emergency Department
The new Murray Bridge Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital Emergency Department (ED) was officially opened by the Minister for Health and Wellbeing, the Hon. Stephen Wade MLC on Wednesday 21 October 2020 and opened to consumers requiring emergency treatment on Wednesday 28 October 2020.
The $7 million upgrade to the ED includes:
Two resuscitation bays (one more than previously available)
Seven treatment bays (four more than previously available)
A paediatric treatment bay
Two procedure rooms (including a private, multipurpose room with an ensuite, that can be used for gynaecological procedures)
Two consulting rooms
A private triage room
A separate quiet room for vulnerable patients
A relatives’ room
Accessible toilet and shower facilities
An undercover ambulance lobby that will make it easier for paramedics to transfer patients directly into the ED from an ambulance vehicle
A nurses’ station
Clean and dirty utility rooms
An equipment storage area
A staff room, offices, change room and bathroom facilities
A dedicated waiting room
A drop-off point for patients with direct access to the ED
An external decontamination shower
Two new accessible car parking spaces.
The new ED also has capacity for up to three people to have cardiac monitoring (up from one) at the same time.
It has been designed to:
Make it easier for hospital staff to respond to emergencies and look after patient needs
Ensure nursing staff have full visibility of all the patient treatment bays
Ensure patients have increased privacy when it’s needed, for example, during triage and gynaecological procedures
Streamline the main entrance of the hospital, improve wayfinding and patient flow
Create a harmonious work environment where staff, doctors and nurses have access to dedicated working spaces.
Additional works, including relocation of SA Medical Imaging, completion of the link-way between the hospital and the new medical records area, the ultrasound office and waiting room, will be completed by late 2020.
The redevelopment was undertaken by Shape Australia Pty Ltd.
Riverland Mallee Coorong Local Health Network (RMCLHN) wishes to thank the Murray Bridge Soldiers’ Memorial Health Advisory council for their support throughout the redevelopment project.
