Emergency Department Splits

Recommended Posts

During the COVID pandemic, it was clear that Emergency Departments across the UK needed to adapt and quickly, with my trust not exempt from this. We have increased capacity, increased our nursing and doctors on the shop floor, obviously with nurse in charge being responsible for all areas. We have different admission wards in terms of symptoms that the patient has, but also have a different type of flow, which i am getting my head around to be able to share

I have seen departments split into 2 and various other ideas coming out from various trusts. Which got me thinking about patient safety and how well this is managed.


So....

How is your department responding to the pandemic?

Do you have any patient safety initiatives as a result of the response?

Is there a long term plan?

 

The reason why i am asking this, is so we can share practice and identify individual trust responses.
