Help Keep Patients Safe During Elevator Transports

(From the May 2013 Issue of MedStat)

When using off-stage elevators, patients are the priority. To help keep our patients (many of whom are on precautions) safe during transport, physicians, nurses, residents and other staff should exit the elevator when patient transport boards the elevator with a patient. There are five additional elevators available on each unit. Some of these are often used for food service or linens, but are available to all staff. Keep our patients and yourselves healthy by minimizing exposure.
