With the many changes and advancements at TriStar Greenview, one constant remains a top priority – our commitment to patient safety. TriStar Greenview was one of the early HCA hospitals nationwide to implement eMAR, or electronic medication administration record. eMAR is a wireless record-keeping system that documents medications prescribed and administered during the patient’s stay in the hospital. eMAR greatly reduces the chance for medication errors – and is an effective way to ensure that the right patient is receiving the right medication, in the right dosage at the right time.
TriStar Greenview, a leading orthopaedic facility in the region, utilizes the HANA™ Hip and Knee Arthroplasty Table – the only surgical table designed exclusively for the anterior approach to Hip and Knee Arthroplasty. TriStar Greenview was one of the first hospitals in southern Kentucky to use the HANA table. The Anterior Approach surgery procedure is a technique that minimizes the pain and time from surgery to recovery. The Anterior Approach allows the surgeon to reach the hip joint from the front of the hip as opposed to the lateral (side), or the posterior (back) approach.
TriStar Greenview allows patients to get a better estimate of how long it will take to receive care, in non-emergency situations. The program allows patients to receive an estimated wait time through the internet, text message, or special signage. People with a text message feature on their cell phones, can text ER to 23000 and receive a text back with the wait time for the hospital closest to them.
TriStar Greenview uses a rolling four hour average, and is updated every 30 minutes. We define the “wait time” as “the time between entering the ER and beginning the medical screening examination from a qualified medical professional - either a physician, a physician assistant or a nurse practitioner.“ Patients are always seen in priority order, based on the type and severity of their medical problem.
TriStar Greenview is proud of its position as a primary component of Southern Kentucky’s healthcare community. Our mission for more than 40 years has been on people – the people who need medical services, and the people who deliver them. As today's healthcare picture rapidly changes, TriStar Greenview is well-positioned to take advantage of those changes through its affiliation with TriStar Health and HCA. At TriStar Greenview, we are LISTENING – because we believe that patients really do make the hospital better!
