COVID-19 Field Hospital Equipment & Staffing
During the COVID-19 pandemic, SMS built and staffed field hospitals across the country. Our temporary hospitals are designed for the overflow of triage patients from traditional institutions. These hospitals help alleviate overcrowding and allow for quicker and smoother patient treatment.
The field hospitals can be built and staffed according to the client’s needs. We can accommodate whether you need a triage hub that can treat minor complaints and divert serious medical problems to the appropriate higher care facility or if an additional Emergency Room or intensive care unit beds are needed.
SMS provides the full service of designing the most appropriate facility, setting up portable buildings and tents, to fully equipping the facility with beds and all specialized equipment. Additionally, we fully stock the establishment with medical supplies.
The facility’s staffing consists of medical and administrative personnel to meet the field hospital’s needs. SMS will provide all staffing and will work with local facilities to best meet the patients’ needs.
