I’ve work in the ED for almost 2 1/2 years now. They did away with our triage nurse when Covid first started and census was down d/t patients being afraid to come to the hospital. Census is back up to normal now, and they’re expecting our charge nurses to do triage as well. It’s leading to patient harm, and administration is still refusing to give us back a triage nurse. We’re also cardiac certified, and some patients are having to wait forever to even see a nurse and some just leave. We have no way to monitor the waiting rooms with any medical staff. Registration are the only ones out there. I’m not OK with putting my patients safety at risk nor am I OK with putting my license on the line over something I have no control over. Are any other EDs doing this? It just blows my mind.
