Jerold Phelps Community Hospital goes online

The Jerold Phelps Community Hospital in Garberville is changing over from paper charts to electronic medical records. Use of the new system, called Centriq from Healthland, will begin on Tuesday morning at 7a.m.

Sarah Beach, the Director of Nursing, said staff is ready for the change.

“Everything will be in the chart for us. We won’t have to run and go look for a paper chart to look for allergies or medications,” Beach said. “We won’t have to take the time to re-write everything down; we’ll have everything at our fingertips.”
