SRMC at maximum capacity; asking patients to seek alternatives

Officials with Southeastern Regional Medical Center (SRMC) are urging the public to visit their family physician or use local clinics for all health conditions not requiring emergency care as currently all staffed beds at SRMC are occupied and patients seeking admission are facing delays.

“We are urging our community to evaluate their health care needs to determine the most appropriate place from which to seek care at this time,” said Renae Taylor, chief nursing officer for Southeastern Health. “Persons with true emergencies, such as trauma or chest pain, should not hesitate to come in for emergency care. Patients who do seek care from SRMC’s emergency department will be treated in order of the seriousness of their condition. Individuals who seek emergency care for minor health issues will likely face extensive delays.”

Because flu cases throughout the region are rapidly increasing, SRMC announced visitation restrictions on January 5, limiting most patients to two visitors, ages 18 and over, except in the emergency room, where only one 18 or older visitor will be allowed per patient.

Individuals who feel they may be sick and need to seek non-emergency medical care may visit a Southeastern Health primary care or walk-in clinic. The walk-in clinics include: Southeastern Health Mall Clinic on the campus of Biggs Park Mall, The Clinic at Walmart, The Clinic at Lumberton Drug and Southeastern Urgent Care Pembroke.
