Hospital Honors Emergency Nurses Day Oct. 11


Payson Regional Medical Center is celebrating Emergency Nurses Day with an "Injury Prevention Fair" next week.

The event will be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday Oct. 11 in the main lobby of the hospital.


Approximately 15,000 patients come through these doors at Payson Regional Medical Center where a well-qualified and experienced emergency nursing staff cares for them.

There will an opportunity to meet the PRMC Emergency Department staff, ask questions regarding emergency services available at the hospital and gather information on how to help prevent injury at home, school and in your community.

The Emergency Department at Payson Regional Medical Center provides care for approximately 15,000 patients each year.

It is a full service emergency department and has applied for Trauma Designation from the State of Arizona and the American College of Emergency Physicians.

"Payson Regional Medical Center is proud of the expert level of our nurses," said Sandi Espinosa, emergency department director.

"Most have an average of 20 years or more of emergency department experience. All of the nursing staff are certified in Advance Cardiac Life Support and Pediatric Advanced Life Support.

"Many are also certified in Adult and Pediatric Trauma Care and several have passed the nationally recognized certification exam in Emergency Nursing offered by the Emergency Nurses Association."

The public is invited to join PRMC in honoring the compassion, skills and commitment of emergency nurses everywhere.
