Clinic triage system works


Not all holidays are cause for celebration. Some bring medical emergencies at the worst possible time when providers are absent and the “system” is skeletal. I needed medical help on Fourth of July and found it with SEARHC’s recently initiated Nurse Triage Program. Service was swift, professional, efficacious and caring. I would like to commend SEARHC’s governing board and on-duty staff for creating an essential missing link in our limited rural medical network. Well done! Thank you.
