Directive

STEMI Transport Destinations

July 28, 2008

Destination decisions on STEMI patients are based on the time savings created when the hospital notifies the Cath team based upon our recognition of a STEMI from the field.

  • Effective immediately, we will no longer transport STEMI patients to Florida Hospital East because they will not notify their transportation team or their Cath lab based on a field call.
  • Using the same criteria, we are pleased to announce, effective immediately, we will resume destination transports for STEMI patients to South Seminole Hospital.
  • ORH/ORMC now has a 24/7 Cath team available and will initiate the process based on a field call.

To summarize, destination hospitals for STEMI patients: Central Florida Hospital, Florida Hospital Altamonte, Florida Hospital Orlando, South Seminole Hospital and Orlando Regional Medical Center.
