Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center Announces New Emergency Department Provider on Arrival Initiative
Building on our commitment to provide the highest quality care and an excellent
patient experience to the community we serve, Pomona Valley Hospital Medical
Center is pleased to announce 24-hour Provider on Arrival at the triage
desk in the Emergency Department (ED). This means that when patients now
arrive at the ED, they have access to a certified Emergency Department
physician, who can quickly assess the patient for level of care required
and immediacy of need for treatment.
Our hospital is one of the first in the region to staff ED arrival with
emergency physicians exclusively. According to Dr. James Kim, ED Medical
Director, “Provider on Arrival improves the Emergency Department
patient flow, expedites treatment and improves patient satisfaction.”
Since the September launch of Provider on Arrival, patients requiring an
immediate bed have experienced shorter wait times and prompt care once
they’ve been moved to a bed because the physician has already placed
the treatment and medication orders during the rapid medical exam at triage.
And the time from arrival to discharge has reduced for all patients.
