INTRODUCTION: ED crowding is a public health crisis, limiting quality and access to lifesaving care. The purpose of this study was to (1) evaluate the feasibility of radio-frequency identification tags to measure clinician-patient contact and (2) to test the relationship between ED occupancy and clinician-patient contact time. METHODS: In this 4-week observational study, radio-frequency identification tags were worn by emergency clinicians in a 21-bay urban teaching hospital emergency department...

INTRODUCTION: Emergency staff members have a unique role in providing episodic care to marginalized populations. The lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community is a marginalized population that is routinely encountered by ED staff. Implicit prejudice may influence emergency staff interactions and contribute to distrust of health care providers by some members of the LGBT community. The purpose of our study is to evaluate aggregate ED health care team member's knowledge and attitudes toward lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people pre- and post-cultural competency training education...

INTRODUCTION: For ED patients at risk of suicide, counseling to reduce access to lethal means (including firearms) is recommended yet not routine. To enhance practice uptake, we sought to examine the attitudes and beliefs of emergency nurse leaders concerning the acceptability and effectiveness of lethal-means counseling. METHODS: We invited a nurse leader (ED nurse manager or Chief Nursing Officer [CNO]) at each hospital-based emergency department in the 8-state Mountain West region of the United States to complete a closed-ended telephone survey...

PROBLEM: Difficult venous access is a common problem in health care-especially in the emergency setting-that relies on quick diagnostics to differentiate patient acuities and administer critical medications. The creation of a dedicated team to address difficult venous access (DVA) is a possible solution to the problems of delayed venous access, yet no studies have been published on implementing such a team in the emergency department. METHODS: This was a quasi-experimental study in an urban emergency department...

PROBLEM: False-positive blood-culture results due to skin contamination of samples remain a persistent problem for health care providers. Our health system recognized that our rates of contamination across the 4 emergency department campuses were above the national average. METHODS: A unique specimen collection system was implemented throughout the 4 emergency departments and became the mandatory way to collect adult blood cultures. The microbiology laboratory reported contamination rates weekly to manage potential problems; 7 months of data are presented here...

INTRODUCTION: This study aimed to describe interruptions experienced by emergency nurses and establish convergence validity of 1 objective workload measure by linking interruption characteristics to objective and subjective measures of workload. METHODS: Interruptions were captured in real time across 8- or 12-hour shifts using a previously validated Workflow Interruptions Tool (WIT). Data collected on each interruption included type, priority, and location where the interruption occurred...

PROBLEM: Emergency department overcrowding and acuity are significant challenges to patients and staff. Low-acuity patients have extended wait times, and decreased satisfaction can have a negative effect on patient flow. METHODS: A multidisciplinary ED team developed and launched the first ED-based Telehealth Express Care Service, where patients who present to the emergency department with minor complaints are offered a "virtual visit" with a board-certified emergency physician located remotely...

INTRODUCTION: Patient falls are a significant issue in hospitalized patients and financially costly to hospitals. The Joint Commission requires that patients be assessed for fall risk and interventions in place to mitigate the risk of falls. It is imperative to have a patient population/setting specific fall risk assessment tool to identify patients at risk for falling. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the reliability and validity of the 2013 Memorial ED Fall Risk Assessment tool (MEDFRAT) specifically designed for the ED population...

INTRODUCTION: The objective of this study was to review the currently published literature on the topic of pediatric triage education. METHOD: An integrative review of the literature was conducted using database searching and historical record review. RESULTS: A wide variety of pediatric triage educational methods exist, but studies with the highest-quality ratings most often used simulation programs or a standardized curriculum. Although there was a good deal of heterogeneity in terms of the outcomes measured, the accuracy of triage improved following educational interventions...

INTRODUCTION: Screening for suicidality is a critical nursing function at the initial ED encounter. Suicide is the tenth leading cause of death in the United States, and a substantial percentage of people who die by suicide present for health care in the year before their deaths. The emergency department provides health care professionals with a critical opportunity to identify patients at risk for suicide and intervene appropriately. METHODS: Qualitative exploratory study using focus-group data...

INTRODUCTION: Patient experience ratings are important to health care organizations from both a clinical and financial perspective. Studies examining the relationship between patient experience and nurse staffing are prevalent in the inpatient setting, but not as much is known about how staffing affects these ratings in the emergency department. METHODS: Using responses from 3,120 adult patients who visited the emergency department of a large academic medical center in the southeastern United States between March 1, 2015, and November 30, 2015, this study examined the relationships between ED RN staffing and patient experience ratings...
