How many of you deal with others who have long triage times? I'm talking 8, 10, 15 minute triage times. In the meantime you have people checking in and they just keep stacking up, sometimes without relief triage staff to bail you out. My frustration is, where I work, we try to keep our triages to 2 minutes. Other than triaging a baby or psych pt, all other triages should be quick.
What kind of direction or feedback could I provide to those that are repeatedly less than swift? There is no fire under them, it is just their pace and inability to go faster, or lack of concern. I am not sure which, but it is a problem. I don't know that a direct "you need to triage faster" will be effective.
