Our Specialized Emergency Care Designations
Orange County Paramedic Base
The Emergency Department is a level two, basic services, paramedic-receiving
center and is one of seven Paramedic Bases in Orange County, with thirteen
Paramedic Units assigned to it.
Paramedic base hospitals play an extremely important role in the assessment
and treatment of patients before they arrive in the emergency department.
The physicians and nurses are communicating with paramedics via radio
before the patient even arrives.
Paramedic Resource for the Anaheim Fire Department Paramedics
AHMC Anaheim Regional Medical Center has also been designated as a Paramedic
Resource for the Anaheim Fire Department Paramedics and the Paramedic
Coordinator is responsible for quality maintenance, continuing education,
regional paramedic advisory council and case reviews.
STEMI (Heart Attack) Receiving Center
AHMC Anaheim Regional Medical Center's Emergency Department is a designated
cardiac receiving center for STEMI patients. An ST Elevation Myocardial
Infarction (STEMI) is a form of heart attack, and it is important that
those who experience a STEMI be treated within 90 minutes of the first
onset of symptoms. Orange County residents with chest pain who call 9-1-1
will automatically be directed to a STEMI center, where cardiac expertise
and facilities are ready 24-hours-a-day, seven days-a-week. The STEMI
receiving team works in conjunction with the cardiovascular department
to provide the best cardiac care available.
The Safe Place
Next to the Emergency Department is The Safe Place, a sexual assault examination
unit. In order to visit the Safe Place, individuals
must be assessed by the medical staff in the Emergency Department to ensure
that any and all emergencies are taken care of. After this, any patient
who believes that he or she has been sexually assaulted can meet with
law enforcement officials at The Safe Place to submit forensic evidence
of such a case.
AHMC Anaheim Regional Medical Center has the
only Safe Place in Orange County. Every other Emergency Department and medical
center in Orange County refers their patients to our Safe Place, once
they have been medically evaluated.
