I handed the rough draft of my ICU paper to several people to proofread
. They all ended up making the same assumption or asking the same question. They assumed ICU and ER were the same thing (none were medical folks - the target audience of the paper is prospective nursing students) and I realized I needed to explain the difference in the paper.
Trouble is, I am having a REAL hard time explaining the criteria for why a person gets moved out of the ER and into ICU the way the paper requires - layman's language and "quick & to the point", almost brochure style. I've re-wtitten the paragraph more than a dozen times.
Thanks again folks!
