Abstract:

As hospital emergency departments (EDs) in the United States face an increased patient volume, challenges emerge to provide effective patient care. This quality improvement project addresses the gaps in ED patient care related to patient flow through the ED by implementing the Door-to-Doc Toolkit. The Door-to-Doc Toolkit improves ED efficiency by redesigning the patient intake process. The cornerstone of the Toolkit is the use of an advanced practice nurse in triage to direct patient flow into the ED. The results of the project show a decreased number of patients leaving before receiving a medical screening exam and decreased time that patients spend in the ED.
