#GMVEMSC: Dayton VA Rerouting All Surgical Patients/New Diversion Policy


The Dayton Veterans Administration Medical Center is in the final phase of remodeling their Operating Rooms (ORs).  As they put in the new HVAC system, all ORs will be closed. EMS should not take any potential surgical patients to the Dayton VA for the next 10 days (until June 28).  This is indicated on the Reroute webpage.  If there are any questions regarding specific patients, contact medical control. 


All crews are reminded that the new Diversion Policy goes into effect on July 1, along with the rest of the Standing Orders changes.  The new policy is centered on capabilities; if the facility doesn’t have capabilities for your patient, you must transport to a location that does have that capability.
