    I work in a rural Kentucky ED as manager. We have only 6 beds but are seeing 22000+ patients/year. We participated in the NRMI study with Genentech and I am very proud to say our "door to drug" time is 15 minutes! Less than half the national and state average!!!! We mostly staff 4-5 nurses on day shift, 4 nurses on evenings and 3 on night shift. We have one ward clerk for 12 hours/day and we do not utilize CNA's or techs.

    JCAHO really dug into our use of conscious sedation in the ED. They really didn't address restraint use in the ED, they reserved that for the other nursing units.
