Construction Update
ER door location will change.
The footings and foundation blocks are all in process of being finished this week. Dirt piles will begin to disappear as construction crews backfill around the foundation walls that have been built.

As they finish the foundation, the construction team will be relocating the ER door just around the corner from where it is now. This is illustrated in the picture.

Many of the blankets that kept the ground from freezing are being packed away. Steel beams and joists will start to get erected the first week of February. By the end of February, most of our new structure will have walls and will look very different!

Inside the hospital, changes will start to occur in the ER waiting room, with a middle sink and cabinet getting taken out. This room will also get fresh flooring and new furniture!

Ebola threat hightens WAH preparedness
While an ebola outbreak is not likely in our area, WAH is preparing for the potential threat by taking several steps.

All patients presenting at the hospital will be screened by staff using the following protocol, prescribed by Sanford and the Center for Disease Control (CDC):

1. All patients are being asked travel questions upon first contact with WAH Staff.

2. Patients are also screened for a fever of 100.4 or above and other physical symptoms including headache, weakness, muscle pain, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain or hemorrhage.

If a patient may be a risk, the staff follow a recommended protocol including isolating the patient, implementing a notification chain, and wearing protective gear.

The process has also be incorporated into our electronic medical record system, to ensure staff and patient safety.
