Example 5: Updating Changed Facility Addresses

In 2007, Clinch Memorial Hospital in Homerville, GA moved to a new facility about a mile and a half from the old location (source: phone call to facility). Searching for the facility on Google Maps takes you to a point on the map that corresponds to the new facility address. However, the facility is not visible on Street View, which suggests that the ED is located in a trailer park. Further complicating matters was the fact that the hospital website linked to directions for the old hospital address.

  
                                               
To resolve this problem, EMNet researchers confirmed the locations of these facilities by placing phone calls to facility staff.
