    Covering 1:1’s in the ER

    Hey guys! Reaching out for some guidance for the ER I work in is having a ton of trouble staffing PCAs/ER techs to cover the rapidly rising number of behavioral health one to ones we have. How do your ERs do it without overstaffing? We’re an inner city ER that sees about 60k patients annually, and as you can imagine, we can go from zero psych patients to 4+ in an hour. We utilize staff from the inpatient floors when available, but more often than not it’s left to us. Anyone have any ideas? Not only are our ER techs getting burnt out from sitting on one to ones every single day but the nurses could also use the extra set of hands that they’re losing in their busy assignments. Thanks!!
