Abstract:
Podium presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: This collaborative Nursing project between the Emergency Room team and the Mental Health team changed the triage process upon entry to the emergency room for patients with mental health issues. A 5 level triage tool was modified from an existing tool that was developed by the Victorian Emergency Department Mental Health Triage Project 2000 based in Australia and piloted in the emergency room. This project also developed the use of the Nursing Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) which improved hand off of high risk mental health patients to the mental health registered nurse while still in the emergency room. This Nursing collaborative new process has allowed for appropriate triage and intervention of patients with mental health illness, decreased ER length of stay, timely admission, and decreased use of the code green team and created a safer environment for patients and staff.
