Julieta Ducasa, former Nurse Manager at Baptist Health South Florida’s Transfer Center, discusses the initial and continuing value of transfer centers. The Transfer Center at BHSF has been established for over five years and has been immensely valuable to the organization. By thinking outside of the box and expanding the role of their transfer center, they have brought even more success. They are now focusing on incorporating other services using technology (TeleStroke, Call Recording, Transfer Center Software) to better meet the needs of patients.
