BACKGROUND: From a patient safety perspective, it is of great importance that decision support systems such as triage scales are evidence based. In the most recent national survey, the majority of Swedish Emergency Departments (EDs) apply the Swedish triage scale known as the Medical Emergency Triage Treatment Scale (METTS), subsequently renamed the Rapid Emergency Triage Treatment Scale (RETTS©). Despite national widespread implementation, there has been limited research on METTS/RETTS©...

REVIEW
Rebecca Angharad Ashton, Lucy Morris, Ian Smith
INTRODUCTION: Patient and visitor violence or aggression against healthcare workers in the Emergency Department (ED) is a significant issue worldwide. This review synthesises existing qualitative studies exploring the first-hand experiences of staff working in the ED to provide insight into preventing this issue. METHOD: A meta-ethnographic approach was used to review papers. RESULTS: Four concepts were identified: 'The inevitability of violence and aggression'; 'Staff judgments about why they face violence and aggression'; 'Managing in isolation'; and 'Wounded heroes'...

BACKGROUND: Today's nurses face complex patient challenges and increased patient acuity. Novice nurses may feel unprepared for some of the tasks facing them. In order to prevent adverse events and improve patient outcomes, the management of acute situations has been identified as an area needing attention. Despite this, it is not yet clear what novice nurses themselves perceive as an acute situation. Therefore, the aim of this study is to describe novice nurses' perceptions of acute situations...

BACKGROUND: Best evidence guidelines are intended to standardise assessment and treatment of patients with head trauma and improve outcomes for TBI patients. The primary aim was to explore pre-hospital emergency care nurses' (PECNs') documented assessment and care of patients with head trauma and the secondary aim to study gender differences in the documented care and interventions given by the PECNs. METHODS: A retrospective observational study was conducted by evaluating 2750 prehospital medical records...

INTRODUCTION: Acute cholecystitis and biliary colic may have signs and symptoms similar to those of Acute Coronary Syndrome(ACS) along with ischemic ECG changes. Cholecystitis and/or biliary colic have been both reported as trigger factors for bradyarrhythmia in the literature. CASE REPORT: A 78-year-old male patient was admitted to our Emergency Department (ED) due to acute abdominal pain. The ECG on admission showed sinus bradycardia with a rate of 40 beats per minute (bpm) without signs of acute ischemia and a brief period (7 s) of complete atrioventricular (AV) block...

INTRODUCTION: Elderly people visiting emergency departments (ED) are a non-homogenous group. Gender and other socio-demographic variations in emergency care might be present. However, gender-specific ED-data is scarce. METHODS: We retrieved retrospective data on all ED-visits, by 67years and older from 2008 to 2012, and calculated incidence of visits applying population registries. The relationship of age-categories, marital status, health and residence with outcomes were analyzed descriptively by Chi-square tests...

BACKGROUND: Patients who suffer violent, crime related injuries are likely to seek medical assistance in emergency departments. Forensic patients may not disclose the cause of their injuries leading to the impairment of evidence. We explored healthcare providers' perceptions of forensic patients and how they should be cared for. METHOD: The perceptions of physicians and nurses regarding the profiles and care of forensic patients were explored in three urban emergency departments...

BACKGROUND: Emergency Department (ED) nurses often confront unexpected cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) with little information about the patients. METHODS: This qualitative study explored the experience of performing CPR among ED nurses. Data collection took place between May and June 2016 using an online advertisement to recruit 17 ED nurses.

We explored the existing patient handover practices between emergency care practitioners and healthcare professionals in the emergency department. In the emergency department, patient handover between emergency care practitioner's and healthcare professionals is a complex process involving multiple functions, such as the transfer of information, responsibility and accountability from one person to another. We used a qualitative study design. Emergency care practitioners and healthcare professionals were identified using purposive and convenience sampling data...

BACKGROUND: Studies that examined the negative impact of violence in emergency departments on nurses' leave and avoidance behavior are well-documented. However, few studies provided an integrated model of how and when violence influences their leave and avoidance behavior. PURPOSE: The study adopted Affective Events Theory to propose and examine a model of violent events, negative emotions, and (leave and avoidance) behaviors on nurses in emergency departments and further analyzed whether the model is salient to nurses' occupational burnout, nursing experience, and nursing rank...

BACKGROUND: Cardiac arrest (CA) is often associated with high mortality. In Sweden, it is reported that 13-52 per 100,000 people suffer out-of-hospital CA, and survival to one month is 2-14%. OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to describe people's experiences of surviving a CA after therapeutic hypothermia treatment. METHOD: A descriptive qualitative design was used. Data were collected through individual interviews with seven CA survivors. The collected data were analyzed using qualitative content analysis...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Prompt identification of traumatic brain injury (TBI) is vital for patients in critical condition; however, it is not clear which acuity scoring tools are associated with short-term mortality. The aim of this study was to determine the accuracy of acuity scoring tools and 24-h mortality among TBI patients in both prehospital and hospital settings. METHODS: This study was an observational, prospective cohort, in which patients with TBI were followed from the accident scene to the hospital...

BACKGROUND: The Institute of Medicine recognizes that the workplace environment is a crucial factor in the ability of nurses to provide safe and effective care, and thus interactions that affect the quality and safety of the work environment require exploration. OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to use situational analysis to develop a grounded theory of workplace bullying as it manifests specifically in the emergency care setting. METHODS: This study used a grounded theory methodology called situational analysis...

INTRODUCTION: When faced with a patient in cardiac arrest, ambulance personnel must rapidly make complex decisions with limited information. Much of the research examining decisions to commence, continue, withhold or terminate resuscitation has used retrospective audits of registry data and clinical documentation. This study offers a provider-perspective which characterises uncertainty and highlights clinical, cognitive, emotional and physical demands associated with decision-making in the cardiac arrest context...
