INTRODUCTION: Nurse-initiated radiographic-test protocol was compared with usual practice in reducing unnecessary ankle and foot radiographic-test requests and shortening patients' length of stay (LOS) in an emergency department (ED) by reducing their waiting time for physician reassessment. METHODS: Patients with ankle injuries were enrolled in an unblinded randomized controlled trial. Participants were randomized to receive either the protocol (n = 56) or usual practice (n = 56)...

BACKGROUND: Major trauma is a significant public health problem and a leading cause of death for several age groups. To address this issue, Major Trauma Networks were introduced in the UK from 2010, consisting of Major Trauma Centres (MTCs) and a network of linked Trauma Units (TUs). OBJECTIVE: The aim is to undertake a systematic review to examine how effective is trauma simulation as an educational process for healthcare providers within trauma networks. METHODS: The databases searched included Medline, Embase and Cinahl from 2010 to 2016...

BACKGROUND: To date, the majority of studies assessing accidental injuries among the elderly have focused on fall injuries, while studies of other mechanisms of injuries have been lacking. Therefore, the main objective of this study was to investigate all injury-related visits among older adults to an emergency department and risk factors for injuries. METHODS: Data were collected on all registered visits of adults, ≥67 years old, living in the capital of Iceland, to the emergency department of Landspitali, the National University Hospital, in 2011 and 2012...

INTRODUCTION: Hospital emergency codes frequently comprise of colors to prevent confusion and enhance prompt response to emergency situations. The purpose of this study was to identify perceptions of emergency color codes among hospital employees in Korea. METHODS: A 12-color spectrum and emergency situations were selected from the standardized emergency color codes used in the US and Canada. Participants were selected via convenience sampling from four general hospitals in Seoul and Gyeonggi-Do...

INTRODUCTION: Abdominal pain has a wide range of possible causes, which may lead to difficulties in diagnosing and lengthy Emergency Department (ED) stays. In this study, bottlenecks in ED processes of patients with abdominal pain were identified. METHODS: Time-points of patients who presented to a Dutch ED with abdominal pain were observed and documented. The institutional review board approved the study. RESULTS: In total, 3015 min of patient time were observed in 54 patients...

INTRODUCTION: As disasters may occur any time, health care staff and institutions should be prepared to manage these events. The aim of study is to analyze the effects of high-fidelity simulation on the perceptions of senior nursing students regarding their preparedness for disasters.

BACKGROUND: Previous research has identified perceived self-efficacy to be a vital component of clinicians' positive attitudes towards caring for intoxicated patients and women who have been assaulted. To date, little is known about the perceived self-efficacy and influences among emergency clinicians towards intoxicated women victims of violence. METHOD: Using mixed methods, 179 emergency clinicians were surveyed and 22 emergency clinicians were interviewed in South Australia about their education/training, their awareness and use of best practice guidelines and tools, and their perceived self-efficacy toward treating intoxicated women victims of violence...

BACKGROUND: Nursing assessment of elderly patients is imperative in Emergency Departments (ED) while providing interventions that increase independence facilitating discharge to primary healthcare. AIMS: To systematically review the impact of geriatric focused nurse assessment and intervention in the ED on hospital utilisation in terms of admission rate, ED revisits and length of hospital stay (LOHS). METHODS: Search strategy used following databases; Cochrane, Medline, CINAHL, Embase, Scopus and Web of Knowledge; And terms; geriatric nurse assessment, nurse discharge planning, geriatric nurse specialist, nurse intervention, emergency department, accident and emergency, patient outcomes, discharge, admissions, readmissions, hospital utilization, hospitalization, length of stay/hospital stay...

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: End-of-life care is becoming more prevalent in the Emergency Department. Quality end-of-life care includes spiritual support. As spirituality is a relatively vague concept, understanding healthcare professionals' spiritual perspectives is important. AIMS: To explore the perspectives of Emergency Department doctors and nurses in (i) spirituality, (ii) spiritual care domain in end-of-life care and (iii) factors influencing spiritual care provision in the Emergency Department...

BACKGROUND: Preservation of a dying person's dignity in the emergency department (ED) is fundamental for the patient, his/her relatives and healthcare professionals. The aim of this study was to explore and interpret physicians' and nurses' experiences regarding conservation of dignity in end-of-life care in dying patients in the ED. METHODS: A qualitative study based on the hermeneutic phenomenological approach, was carried out in the emergency department of two general hospitals...

INTRODUCTION: Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) and resulting fatalities among older adults increased considerably in recent years. Neurological deterioration often goes unrecognized at the injury scene and patients arrive at emergency departments with near-normal Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) scores. This study examined the proportion of older adults experiencing early neurological deterioration (prehospital to emergency department), associated factors, and association of the magnitude of neurological deterioration with TBI severity...

One of the most frequent chief complaints among older persons presenting in the emergency department (ED) is dizziness. Nurses in the ambulance and in the ED play an important role in managing these patients. The challenge in the ED or ambulance is to, with limited diagnostic equipment; decide the correct level of care. The aim of this study was to identify factors that differed between those who were admitted to hospital and those who were not among older persons (65+) presenting in the ED with dizziness. The method was a retrospective journal audit...

INTRODUCTION: Older persons aged over 65years represent up to 41% of Australian Emergency Department (ED) presentations. Older persons present with acute and/or chronic conditions, have more Emergency Department visits, hospital admissions and readmissions than other age groups. However, little is known about the characteristics and trends of acute illness and chronic presentations and whether frailty changes these dimensions within this cohort. METHODS: A 12-month retrospective medical record audit of persons over 65years presenting to four EDs...

AIMS: The aims of the present study were to report and compare regional and metropolitan Australian ED nurses' knowledge and understanding of age related characteristics of the older person. BACKGROUND: ED nurses, who have a duty of care to deliver best practices for managing the older person, can be challenged due to the complexities and co-morbidities associated with older person presentations in the ED. Nurses in regional areas may have limited access to continuing education programmes and limited opportunities to attend such programmes...
