Predictive Management - Improving the Patient Experience In ED20 July 2016
On June 3rd Cork University Hospital commenced an initiative to address the twin challenges of:
(i) Ensuring that no patient waits over 24 hours in the Emergency Department and
(ii) Ensuring that no patient over 75 years of age waits over nine hours for a bed.
Though these have been National targets for some time, we are far more concerned about the clear benefit that this will have to the individual patient. Prolonged waiting is physically detrimental to the patient and associated with a clear erosion of dignity.
