NORWICH,UK ƒ A new£800,000 ($1,618,860USD)ambulance depot intended to cut down on methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) has opened outside ofNorwich,UK according to the BBC.The station located at theLongwaterBusinessPark was completed in early July and began operation on Sunday.
The depot has an ambulance station, full service vehicle washing and stocking area, and medical storage. All this has been done in an effort to cut down on the risk of patients contracting a MRSA infection.
The new facility provides a system that will allow paramedics and emergency workers to concentrate on saving lives rather than keeping their emergency vehicles clean and fully stocked. Trained personnel on site will be cleaning and stocking the vehicles for them.
The new ambulance facility replaces both stations at Hellensdon and Bracondale. These areas will continue to be served by a network of smaller response post throughoutNorwich.
