Hospital Route Plan

At every site, the nearest A&E hospital location should be clearly displayed in sensible locations, like the site entrance and staff canteen, where they will be seen if needed.

If possible, a copy of the route map should also be included, inside the first aid box; should it be required.

Examples of how sites have communicated the hospital route plan include:

  • When sites are spread over a relatively large area, all operatives were issued with a handout, giving details of local A&E facilities, and maps showing routes to them;
  • A map giving the route to the nearest A&E unit included a diagram layout of the hospital, showing car parking areas and pedestrian entrances as well as bus stops, to reduce time locating the facilities;
  • A sat nav was made available, with the nearest A&E location already programmed as a favourite route option.

Techniques like this could save valuable time, transporting an injured person from site to the nearest hospital. When accidents do occur, reaction time is vitally important.
