Methods: Two patient rooms were allotted for the Rapid Intake process, which allowed for blood draws, electrocardiograms, and ordering of other tests via standing orders by a nurse. Data measured included ED lengths of stay (LOS) in minutes and patient satisfaction scores (as measured by Press Ganey). Groups were compared using Mann-Whitney U test with significance of p....
