Eli Heicher is the Chief Nursing Officer at Taylorville Memorial Hospital and he says there is no reason to be nervous to go to the Emergency Department at TMH.
ER visits are starting to bounce back, according to Heicher, but a lot of the patients that are coming in have been much sicker on average than they have been in the past.
Heicher does understand the anxiety about visiting the ER, but that the processes that TMH has in place are solid after months of practice.
Everyone that enters the Emergency Department is screened, including the TMH employees, according to Heicher.
