PHOTOS: Sheriff Saves the Day After Hospital Forced to Transfer Patients Due to Air Conditioning Break

Riverview Medical Center in Red Bank, New Jersey, was forced to move a handful of patients to another hospital after an air conditioning unit broke in Wednesday’s blistering heat – but then Monmouth County Sheriff Golden stepped in.

“Our teams are working to make the necessary repairs to bring these systems online as soon as possible,” Hackensack Meridian Health spokeswoman Mary Jo Layton said in a statement. “The safety of our patients and teams is our priority. In an effort to ensure the continued comfort and care of our patients within the impacted areas, we are transferring patients to non-impacted areas of the hospital as well as neighboring HMH facilities.”

Upon learning of the air conditioning break, Sheriff Marty Golden assembled an emergency team to get six air condition units swiftly installed at the hospital.

The Heat Index in New Jersey was standing at 101 degrees on Wednesday afternoon, with the index reaching up to 105 in some areas.
