Autism-Friendly Program

2014-spring-10

Patients with autism react and communicate differently, requiring a special approach to creating a safe and supportive environment – especially in emergency situations. Recognizing the opportunity to develop a comprehensive approach for this need, HealthAlliance Emergency Department leadership initiated a special training program for medical providers, nursing staff and key hospital personnel, such as security.

Besides training, the program incorporates sensory boxes which allow an patient with Autism Spectrum Disorder to select an object, such as a squeeze ball or pinwheel, to aid in relaxation and in dealing with stress. The Emergency Department also acquired two iPads that feature autism-specific apps that help staff communicate with patients with autism and verbally impaired patients. The devices help medical providers learn the reason why the patient has arrived for care; the patient’s pain and discomfort level; and his or her communication preferences.


Fast Track

Patients can also come to the Emergency Room for illnesses and injuries that are not critical in nature.

Many ailments and minor injuries can be diagnosed and treated through our Fast Track program including:

  • Minor orthopedic injuries
  • Minor allergic reactions
  • Wound infections
  • Eye infections and injuries
  • Gastroenteritis
  • Simple lacerations
  • Upper respiratory infection
  • Viral syndromes
  • Wound checks

Fast Track is available 7 days a week, 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 p.m.


SANE Program

HealthAlliance Hospital: Mary’s Ave Campus, in conjunction with the Ulster County District Attorney’s Office, operates a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) program.

The SANE Program provides:

  • Services by specially trained SANE registered nurses offered 24-hours a day, 7 days a week.
  • Free of charge services to victims of sexual assault.
  • Access to nurses who are trained in forensic evidence gathering techniques and the psychological needs of the victim.
  • Private and separate areas where all services are performed.
  • Shower facilities, toiletries and replacement clothing if needed.
  • Counseling and support, through the Crime Victims Assistance Program (CVAP), to victims who choose to file a report (within 30 days).

If an injury requires immediate medical treatment, the patient is referred to the hospital’s emergency department for further evaluation and treatment.


Imaging and Diagnostics in Emergency Medicine

Imaging at our Emergency Department includes wide array of advanced diagnostic and treatment technologies. The Emergency Department at HealthAlliance Hospital: Broadway Campus features CT technology and real-time digital radiography enabling physicians to quickly view and interpret CT scans, MRI results, sonograms and reports. We also utilize a digital documentation system that tracks physician documentation and interfaces with other hospital departments, allowing for quick retrieval of up-to-date records and treatment history – a critical need when time is of the essence.
