    Santa Rosa Guadalupe County Hospital

    New Telehealth Site

    Our telehealth team traveled to Guadalupe County Hospital in Santa Rosa in early September. We set up a telehealth cart, trained staff how to connect to a provider, and took a tour of the entire facility. We are excited to be working with such an enthusiastic hospital staff and their community. GCH is our seventh site in this program.

    Our telehealth program not only connects rural and tribal providers to UNMH specialists, but also encourages nurse-to-nurse telehealth calls. Our nurse educator is available to do telehealth talks with nurses who are partners in our telehealth program. For every hour of in-service, nurses earn one CEU. If you would like to schedule a no-cost telehealth talk for nurses at your facility, contact

    View More


    The National Pediatric Readiness Project is a multi-phase quality improvement initiative to ensure that all U.S. emergency departments (ED) have the essential guidelines and resources in
    place to provide effective emergency care to children.

    The first phase of this
    project will be a national assessment of EDs' readiness to care for children.

    National PRP Purpose

    The primary purpose of this project is three-fold:

    (1) to establish a composite baseline of the nation's capacity to provide care to children in the ED,

    (2) to create a foundation for EDs to engage in an ongoing quality improvement process that includes implementing the Guidelines for the Care of Children in the Emergency Department

    (3) to establish a benchmark that measures an ED's improvement overtime.
