Title Physician Triage Reduces Emergency Wait Times
Creator Kaitlyn Glaspie, University of Utah BSN Student
Description Across the country wait times to see providers in Emergency Departments are of colossal concern. Lengthy wait times for walk in Emergency Department patients may result in: delayed diagnosis, prolonged testing, patients leaving without being seen, and poor patient satisfaction. Many facilities have implemented a physician in triage rather than the contrasting system in place; a nurse in triage. Curiosity led the comparison of these two triage approaches.
