Can't transfer from trauma to infirmary  Empty Can't transfer from trauma to infirmary

Tue Jun 16, 2020 1:39 am
Hi

I have a patient in trauma with a simple arm fracture. I've treated him with plaster splint and now, he's laying down recovering at trauma. In my opinion, this is a minor injure and I believe he could be transfer to infirmary to open up space for another patient who arrives in a serious condition. Is it possible? Does it happens in real life?

thanks.

Yes, you are free to transfer patients to orthopedics if you feel you need them.

Alternatively, you can increase the number of TC rooms to the extent that it is okay to leave a patient, such as him, who can be treated primarily with TC.
Even in the case where many patients are transported in a very short time due to an event,
With 3 to 4 TCs, most patients can be accepted into TCs smoothly.

by infirmary, if you mean observation, No. You'll have to transfer him to Ortho dept.

Also possible is a TC with several beds. Works as well. Got a TC "ward" of 8 beds to cope with said cases plus emergencies. Just made some 'alcoves to put another operating table into. Also saves money since some equipment has only to be purchased once but is shared by all.
