Emergency Department: Community Outreach
The health and safety of our community is of the utmost importance to us. And we take our role very seriously. Community Memorial Hospital participates in and offers many community safety efforts. They range from offering first aid at many local events, such as the Menomonee Falls Fourth of July festivities, to hosting medication drop-off events to keep our homes and environment safe.
First Aid at Community Events
Each year, Community Memorial Hospital participates in more than 20 community events where our nurses and other health care professionals provide basic first aid and offer valuable health screenings to more than 7,000 residents.
Fire Safety Events
Community Memorial Hospital participates annually in a number of events with local fire stations to promote health, wellness and safety. First aid is also offered at many of these events where we partner with the municipalities of Germantown, Lannon, Lisbon, Menomonee Falls, Richfield and Sussex.
Medication Drop Off
Community Memorial Hospital coordinates annually with the Waukesha County Drug Free Communities Coalition and the Menomonee Falls Police Department to host a drug collection at the hospital. The drug collection provides area residents a safe and efficient way of disposing of unwanted and expired prescription and over-the-counter medications, keeping them out of the environment and the hands of children.
Community Memorial Hospital staff is involved in disaster planning for the communities and counties we serve. We coordinate and participate in emergency exercises, working side by side with area police departments, local fire departments, emergency medical services, local emergency management personnel, Public Health departments, the United States military, local school districts, area businesses and other health care systems. These simulated situations, which may range from a school shooting to a natural disaster, allow us to test our staff, procedures and systems to insure that all are ready at a moment's notice, when we are needed most.
