AIM: The aim was to explore the ambulance service as experienced by present and former employees. BACKGROUND: Over the last decade, the number of ambulance assignments has increased annually by about 10%, and as many as 50% of all ambulance assignments are considered non-urgent. This raises questions about which assignments the Ambulance Service (AS) is supposed to deal with. DESIGN/METHOD: Data were collected from three focus group interviews with a total of 18 present and former employees of the Swedish AS...

INTRODUCTION: Overcrowding in emergency departments is an issue that has a negative impact worldwide. As attendance in emergency departments has increased, the ability to provide critical services to patients suffering from actual medical emergencies in a timely manner has decreased as these departments are many times at or over capacity. One patient population whose negative influence has been researched with regard to their impact on the overcrowding issue is that of the frequent user...

INTRODUCTION: Emergency department (ED) crowding is a worldwide public health issue. In this study, patient flow and staff perceptions of crowding were assessed in Pakistan (Aga Khan University Hospital (AKUH)) and in the Netherlands (Haaglanden Medical Centre Westeinde (HMCW)). Bottlenecks affecting ED patient flow were identified. METHODS: First, a one-year review of patient visits was performed. Second, staff perceptions about ED crowding were collected using face-to-face interviews...

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: Triage is implemented to facilitate timely and appropriate treatment of patients, and is typically conducted by senior nurses. Triage accuracy and consistency across emergency departments remain a problem in mainland China. This study aimed to investigate the current status of triage practice and knowledge among emergency nurses in Changsha, Hunan Province, China. METHOD: A sample of 300 emergency nurses was selected from 13 tertiary hospitals in Changsha and a total of 193 completed surveys were returned (response rate=64...

INTRODUCTION: The Identification of Seniors at Risk (ISAR) is one of the most frequently utilized risk screening tools in emergency departments (ED). The goal of this study was to evaluate the predictive validity of the ISAR screening tool for adverse outcomes in an ED. METHODS: This was a prospective single-center observational study in a Portuguese urban university hospital ED, and included 402 older adults (OA). After triage, baseline sociodemographic and clinic data were collected by the researcher and the ISAR was administered...

OBJECTIVES: Although acute pain is a common presentation in the Emergency Department (ED), analgesics are often delayed until the patient is seen by a physician. We assessed the effect of a medical directive for nurse-initiated analgesia on time to first dose of analgesics, proportion of patients receiving analgesics in less than 30min, and total length of stay in the ED. METHODS: A medical directive for nurse-initiated analgesia was introduced in our ED in October 2011...

INTRODUCTION: Psychosocial factors, musculoskeletal disorders and work-related fatigue have adverse effects on individual nurses and place a substantial financial burden on health care. Evidence of an association has been reported in the literature, but no theoretical explanation has been published to date. AIM: To explore and develop a structural model to provide a theoretical explanation for this relationship. METHODS: A cross-sectional study using data from 201 valid samples of emergency and critical care nurses across public hospitals in Brunei was performed via self-administered questionnaire...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVE: Health education improves the prognosis of many diseases. A previous study in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) showed that an educational intervention by nurses at discharge from the emergency room (ER) decreased AF-related complications at 3-month follow-up. Our objective was to determine whether this intervention had a long-term effect. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A prospective study assessed the outcomes of an intervention carried out upon discharge from the ER...

In recent decades, prehospital emergency care has undergone extensive development. Today, prehospital emergency nurses (PENs) are well trained and provide advanced care to patients of all ages. Caring for pediatric trauma patients is considered to be particularly demanding. However, in Sweden and internationally, there is a lack of research regarding PENs' preparedness for caring for pediatric trauma patients. OBJECTIVE: The development and testing of a questionnaire on self-reported preparedness among PENs caring for pediatric trauma patients in a prehospital emergency setting...

AIM: The aim of the study was to identify the types of knowledge that Swedish Emergency Medical Service (EMS) managers considered desirable in their Ambulance Clinicians. BACKGROUND: Emergency medical service managers are responsible for organisational tasking and in this are dependent on the knowledge possessed by their ambulance clinicians. It would therefore be of value to explore EMS managers' approach to this knowledge. DESIGN: A modified Delphi method in three rounds...

BACKGROUND: Family presence during resuscitation (FPDR) has advantages for the patients' family member to be present at the bedside. However, FPDR is not regularly practiced by nurses, especially in low to middle income countries. The purpose of this study was to determine Iranian nurses' and family members' attitudes towards FPDR. METHOD: In a descriptive study, data was collected from the random sample of 178 nurses and 136 family members in four hospitals located in Iran...

REVIEW
Jessica Crawford, Simon Cooper, Robyn Cant, Ruth DeSouza
BACKGROUND: Internationally, non-urgent presentations are increasing the pressure on Emergency Department (ED) staff and resources. This systematic review aims to identify the impact of alternative emergency care pathways on ED presentations - specifically GP cooperatives and walk-in clinics. METHODS: Based on a structured PICO enquiry with either walk-in clinic or GP cooperative as the intervention, a search was made for peer-reviewed publications in English, between 2000 and 2014...

AIM: The aim of this study was to assess the patient safety climate from the perspective of healthcare professionals working in the emergency department of a hospital in Brazil. BACKGROUND: Emergency departments are complex and dynamic environments.

Jonas Wihlborg, Gudrun Edgren, Anders Johansson, Bengt Sivberg
BACKGROUND: The Swedish ambulance health care services are changing and developing, with the ambulance nurse playing a central role in the development of practice. The competence required by ambulance nurses in the profession remains undefined and provides a challenge. The need for a clear and updated description of ambulance nurses' competence, including the perspective of professional experiences, seems to be essential. AIM: The aim of this study was to elucidate ambulance nurses' professional experiences and to describe aspects affecting their competence...
