I am a "Shift Manager" on the weekends in a 30 bed ED. Our process flow is to bring all patients back to the ED if we have open beds with no triage done in our triage area. The only time we are to use the triage area is when we run out of beds. Anyone else doing this and if so, how is it working for you?
As both primary nurse and shift manager, I have a problem with the patients being brought straight back with nothing but an eyeball assessment. I have had patients brought to me that came in by POV, with subdurals because of a head injury that had not been triaged.
