The Emergency Service of the University Hospital of Torrevieja has begun the undertaking of a construction project that will improve the facilities to guarantee greater safety in the provision of care.
Substantial improvement in the accessibility of the service is a priority, framed in the Shock Plan launched by the Department of Health to improve care in the Emergency Service.
The objective of the work is to create an open space that improves the visibility of all patients and favours communication between all health professionals. In this way, a central area will allow the monitoring of users from an optimal position, improving the humanisation and care received by patients.
The project seeks to integrate the urgent care space, adapting the demand and ensuring accessibility and continuity in urgent care.
The remodelling works of the Emergency Service will end on July 26. This project includes, in its scope of action, both the comprehensive reform of the control box for doctors and nurses, as well as the area for dispensing medicines and receiving orders.
Currently the emergency service has a total area of more than 3,400 square metres.
The shock plan launched by the Ministry of Health to improve the Emergency Department of the Torrevieja Hospital is accompanied by a reinforcement of the structure and services, in addition to the extension of hours and the provision of specialists.
