I work at a community hospital that has a very busy E.D. They tell us it is the busiest in the area (and the definition of "area" is what I question).
So I was wondering....how many visits per year does YOUR hospital's E.D. get? I'd like to compare notes. Our E.D. has, I believe, 15 rooms and the hospital itself is licensed for 329 beds but only has about 220 open. The Telemetry unit--which is always slammed with admissions--usually runs at 36 beds but has the capacity of 48 (need more staff!). ICU 18 beds.
Thank you for your help!
