  1. Critical decision making : managing the emergency department in an overcrowded hospital.

    Article - En anglais

    Hospital and emergency department overcrowding is a serious and growing problem nationwide.

    Although EDs are organized around the goals of rapid patient assessment, stabilization, and prompt admission to the hospital, an increasing number are being required to hold admitted floor and critical care patients for extended periods due to lack of vacant inpatient beds.

    Provision of acceptable patient care under such circumstances requires a fundamental reordering of ED priorities and procedures.
