Abstract/Description

Emergency rooms are often overcrowding by patients that may not require the level of care that an emergency room is able to provide. Many of these patients can be seen in a urgent care clinic or a doctors office. The purpose of this study is to reduce the overcrowding in emergency rooms by finding a way to quickly and effectively treat these patients and keep the patients satisfied with the care they receive. The research has found that a fast track system helps with this. A fast track system uses only a small number of smaller rooms to be able to get patients treated without taking up much time or tying up resources or staff from assisting more critical patients. The fast track has been proven to increase patient satisfaction and reduce the wait times in emergency rooms. With little cost to implement, the emergency room would benefit from this small change.
