Participants who attended the lifestyle intervention program had significantly fewer emergency department presentations [Risk Ratio (RR) 0.31, 95% Confidence Interval (CI) 0.11 to 0.83] and potentially avoidable emergency department presentations (RR 0.06, 95%CI .004 to .097) over the follow-up period. There were no differences between the groups in hospital admissions and there were insufficient data to determine changes in metabolic parameters. Lifestyle group participants increased their exercise capacity [6-minute walk test mean difference (MD) 41m, 95%CI 20 to 62] and had a mild decrease in weight (MD -0.8kg, 95%CI -1.5 to -0.2) and waist circumference (MD -1.3cm, 95%CI -2.1 to -0.6) after 8 weeks..

The emergency department utilisation rate among foreign-born residents, once adjusted by age and sex, was 38% lower than that among Spanish-born residents. Moreover, across all age groups, the crude utilisation rates were lower in foreign-born than in Spanish-born residents. This result is consistent with previous reports of healthcare utilisation by the immigrant population and was probably due to the healthy immigrant effect [16, 25], according to which recently arrived immigrants have better health status than native-born residents because of a previous "natural selection procedure" in each country of origin. This fact has also been proven in our country: the percentages of good and excellent self-perceived health were higher, and chronic morbidity was 40% less frequent among economic immigrants than among the rest of the population living in the city of Madrid, after adjusting for age, sex and educational level [26]. To our knowledge, the only study that has analysed utilisation rates by ...

Emergency departments are a critical component of Australias health care system. Many of Australias public hospitals have purpose-built emergency departments, staffed 24 hours a day, providing care for patients who require urgent medical attention. In 2016-17: •there were about 7.8 million presentations to Australian public hospital emergency departments, an average of more than 21,000 per day •patients aged 4 and under (who make up less than 7% of the population) accounted for about 11% of all emergency department presentations •patients aged 65 and over (who make up about 15% of the population) accounted for more than 21% of emergency department presentations •about one-quarter (or almost 2 million) of emergency department presentations had a principal diagnosis in the ICD-10-AM chapter Injury, poisoning and certain other consequences of external causes •the two most common individual principal diagnoses reported were Abdominal and pelvic pain (4.3%), and Pain in the throat and ...
BACKGROUND: In children, community-acquired pneumonia is a frequent cause of emergency department (ED) presentation and hospital admission. Quality primary care may prevent some of these hospital visits. AIMS: The aim of this study was to identify primary care factors associated with ED presentation and hospital admission of preschool-aged children with community-acquired pneumonia. METHODS: A case-control study was conducted by enrolling three groups: children presenting to the ED with pneumonia and admitted (n = 326), or discharged home (n = 179), and well-neighbourhood controls (n = 351). Interviews with parents and primary care staff were conducted and health record review was performed. The association of primary care factors with ED presentation and hospital admission, controlling for available confounding factors, was determined using logistic regression. RESULTS: Children were more likely to present to the ED with pneumonia if they did not have a usual general practitioner (GP) (odds ratio (OR)

The University of Chicago Medicine celebrated the completion of what will be the citys newest and most advanced adult emergency department when the $39 million facility opens to patients in late December. More than 150 people, including public officials, community representatives and faith leaders, were on hand for the Dec. 5 celebration, which included a ribbon-cutting ceremony and community tours of the new state-of-the-art emergency department.
Headache is a common and frequently disabling clinical disorder that accounts for nearly 2% of all emergency department presentations. Often patients are experiencing a headache that is not responding to commonly available medications. However, there is no good evidence to support which available hospital medications consistently offer effective pain relief to individuals with these types of refractory headache. Understandably this is a challenging scenario in the emergency department setting for both the patient and physician that often leads to inadequate or unsatisfactory symptom relief.. In a few small trials, there has been promising evidence that the medication propofol is potentially an effective, safe and quick treatment alternative for stubborn headaches. It is important to note that propofol is not a new medication and is routinely used on a daily basis throughout hospitals for both general anaesthesia and procedural sedation.. It is the intention of this research project to ...
Background. Many proponents for healthcare reform suggest increased cost-sharing by patients as a method to reduce overall expenditures. Prior studies on the effects of co-payments for ED visits have generally not been directed toward understanding patient attitudes/behavior at point of care.Objectives. We conducted a survey at point of care to test our hypothesis that a significant number of patients with urgent chief complaints might have avoided the ED if asked to provide a co-payment.Methods. Cross-sectional study design. Stable, oriented, consenting patients at an inner-city, academic ED were consecutively enrolled at hours in which trained research associates were available to assist with data collection. Enrolled patients completed a written survey providing demographic/chief complaint information, and then were asked whether 13 interval amounts of co-payment ranging from 0 to |500 would have impacted their decision to visit the ED. Categorical data are presented as frequency of occurrence and
Study Objective: To assess the potential clinical impact of thrombolytic therapy for acute myocardial infarction by determining true-positive and false-positive rates of criteria for eligibility among emergency room patients with acute chest pain.. Design: Prospective multicenter cohort study.. Setting: Emergency rooms of three university and four community hospitals.. Patients: Emergency room patients (7734) with acute chest pain.. Measurements and Main Results: Only 261 (23%) of 1118 patients with acute myocardial infarctions were 75 years of age or younger, presented within 4 hours of the onset of pain, and had emergency room electrocardiograms showing probable acute myocardial infarction; 60 (0.9%) of the 6616 patients without infarction also met these criteria (positive predictive value, 261/321 = 81%; CI, 77% to 86%). The positive predictive value could increase to about 88% (CI, 82% to 93%) if eligibility were based on the official hospital electrocardiogram reading.. Conclusions: Because ...
Study Purpose: Substance Use Among Violently Injured Youth in an Urban Emergency Department was an investigation into the natural course of service needs, use, and trajectories among high-risk youth with drug use who present to an inner-city Emergency Department with multiple risk behaviors (with and without acute violent injury). By over-sampling of a violently injured group, the study was able to obtain a sufficient sample size that has been lacking in prior work limiting conclusions and intervention development. The specific aims of the study included:. Specific Aim 1: To describe multiple risk behaviors of youth/young adults (ages 14-24) who report illicit drug use and who present to an urban Emergency Department for an acute violent injury (e.g., laceration, gun shot wound), compared to youth with drug use who seek non-violence related Emergency Department care (for unintentional injury and illness, e.g., motor vehicle crash, abdominal pain). Specific Aim 2: To identify the trajectories of ...
Working-age adults with disabilities account for a disproportionately high amount of annual emergency department visits, reports a comparison study from National Institutes of Health (NIH) researchers.. The NIH study analyzed pooled data from the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey. Researchers found access to regular medical care, health profile complexity, and disability status contributed to people with disabilities use of the emergency department.. Despite representing 17% of the working age US population, the study found that adults with disabilities accounted for 39.2% of total emergency department visits. Those with a severely limiting disability visited an urgent care department more often than their peers and were more likely to visit the emergency department more than 4 times per year.. Emergency visits also were associated with poor access to primary medical care, which was more prevalent among adults with disabilities.. "We want to understand what takes people to the emergency ...

One of the promises of health information exchange is better communication between hospitals and community healthcare providers about patients, including efforts to reduce emergency department utilization rates and ensure people are receiving care in the most appropriate setting.. To improve their information flow, hospitals in Washington state have turned to a solution called the Emergency Department Information Exchange (EDIE), a software tool for proactively notifying EDs when high-utilization or special needs patients register. The information includes those patients prior ED visit history, primary care provider information, and associated care plans.. The Washington State Health Care Authority reports that use of EDIE by hospital EDs has helped save the state a projected $31 million annually. The HCA also reports a 23 percent visit reduction in unnecessary ED visits by Medicaid patients with more than 5 visits in 12 months. Based on this early success in Washington, the Oregon Health ...

Abstract Introduction: Since the introduction of a shared e-scooter service to Auckland in October there have been multiple media reports of associated injuries, but no quantitation of the number or severity of these injuries, or the impact on hospital emergency department services in Auckland. Methods: We performed a retrospective chart review on all patients referred to Auckland hospital ED radiology with the indication containing e-scooter between 15 August 2018 and 15 December 2018. All requests were screened to ensure that the injury was caused by an e-scooter. Recorded data included patient demographics, type of imaging utilised, injury type, and whether admission or surgery was required. Results: Sixty-four patients met the inclusion criteria, only one of these was prior to introduction of shared e-scooters on 15 October 2018. Of these, there were 27 limb fractures, 3 dislocations, a fractured spine, 12 patients with concussion, 1 extra-dural bleed, 9 facial/skull fractures and multiple ...
The Emergency Department at Grand View Hospital is the first in Pennsylvania to achieve accreditation as a Geriatric Emergency Department from the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP). The accreditation recognizes the additional level of resources, education and multidisciplinary care initiatives implemented by Grand View to manage the treatment and well-being of geriatric patients when visiting the Emergency Department and their transition when they are discharged from the hospital. Less than 65 hospitals in the country have been recognized with this accreditation.. "We recognize that our elderly patients have different needs and challenges. They tend to visit emergency departments at a higher rate and often face more social and physical obstacles than others in the general community," says Michael Prasto, MD, Medical Director, Emergency Department at Grand View. "At Grand View, we are particularly focused on what happens when a senior leaves our hospital," explains Kathleen Slagel, ...
The use of procedural sedation and analgesia (PSA) to accomplish painful procedures in the emergency department (ED) has become a standard of practice over the last decade. Substantial variance exists regarding usage of medication for PSA, and many anesthetic agents have been proposed for this use.. To our knowledge no head to head study compared the clinical effectiveness, safety profile and amnestic properties of midazolam/ketamine vs. propofol regimens for PSA in the adult ED setting.. This prospective randomized trail can will help to evaluate the effectiveness and safety profile of Midazolam/katamine regimen for ED PSA in adults and will contribute to the discussion regarding propofol roll in the ED. ...

Heres a fun one courtesy of George W. Bush. He declared a national emergency "With Respect to Export Control Regulations." This renewed presidential power to control exports during a national emergency after the Export Administration Act of 1979 lapsed. So, in essence, Bush declared an emergency so that he could control exports in the event of an emergency.. And it shouldnt escape you that there is ALWAYS some kind of emergency. (Or 31. Or 32, depending on how you count Trumps emergency.). Of course, were still under the state of emergency that was declared after 9-11.. Bush was pretty fond of national emergencies. So was Obama. Between them, the declared 21 that remain in effect today. Most of them involve economic sanctions. They read like this one - courtesy of Barack Obama..

CONCLUSION: One-third of patients presenting to the ED with acute asthma were already receiving ICS/LABA agents; this treatment was independently associated with preventive measures. While ICS/LABA management improves control of chronic asthma, patients using these agents who develop acute asthma reflect higher severity and increased risk of future relapse.

BACKGROUND:. Many urban asthma emergency room patients lack effective self-management. Most current training programs are administered in outpatient settings and have low attendance rates for emergency room patients. There is a great need to develop effective programs that can be easily administered in the emergency room for patients who, in many cases, are not present in other settings to receive education. This proposal builds on preliminary studies and is tailored to provide emergency room patients with basic education during a teachable moment when they may be most receptive to asthma information.. DESIGN NARRATIVE:. Patients will be recruited from two New York City urban emergency rooms or inpatient settings and randomized to the intervention or control groups. Intervention patients will receive a protocol focusing on asthma self-management, education, self-efficacy, and social support, with telephone reinforcement for 8 weeks. Control patients will receive standard emergency room ...
Contrary to the media portrayal of the emergency department (ED), patients commonly experience lulls in their treatment during the course of an ED visit. These are known as "non-value added steps" since they add little to the care that the patient receives.1 For example, after a patient is triaged, the patient often waits to be brought back to a room. After the initial assessment, the patient may wait during the diagnostic testing and treatment phases. Finally, when the physician reviews the information and makes a disposition decision, the patient may wait to either be discharged or admitted. It is during these down times when the attention to patient care wanes and delays are experienced.. Anticipating these delays can result in a smoother, more efficient operations model. In a restaurant, the maître d controls the flow of patrons. Their role is to ensure that guests who arrive are seated as quickly as possible, that their needs are met, and that the table is turned over rapidly and ...
Enrolled participants who completed a baseline assessment and consented to release of medical information were asked to designate all health care facilities at which they had ever received or intended to use medical care. Medical chart reviews were performed according to this designation, including both EDs in New Haven and all three in Hartford, ensuring complete coverage of each urban catchment area so we could document the most extensive possible spectrum of ED utilization. The Veterans Administration (VA) and psychiatric hospitals were not accessed for chart review (although all psychiatric units within the reviewed EDs were included and are a conduit to psychiatric inpatient care). None of the participants designated the VA hospital as a site of prior medical care. Charts were prospectively reviewed for up to 1 year from the date of prison release. ED visit data were compiled for each participant, regardless of how long he or she was retained in the parent study. No one withdrew their ...

In many countries emergency departments (EDs) are facing an increase in demand for services, long-waits and severe crowding. One response to mitigate overcrowding has been to provide primary care services alongside or within hospital EDs for patients with non-urgent problems. It is not known, however, how this impacts the quality of patient care, the utilisation of hospital resources, or if it is cost-effective. To assess the effects of locating primary care professionals in the hospital ED to provide care for patients with non-urgent health problems, compared with care provided by regular Emergency Physicians (EPs), We searched the Cochrane Effective Practice and Organisation of Care (EPOC) Group Specialized register; Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (The Cochrane library, 2011, Issue 4), MEDLINE (1950 to March 21 2012); EMBASE (1980 to April 28 2011); CINAHL (1980 to April 28 2011); PsychINFO (1967 to April 28 2011); Sociological Abstracts (1952 to April 28 2011); ASSIA (1987 to April

It is unknown if patients with malignancies and hyperlactatemia are at increased risk of mortality. If serum lactic acid could improve detection of at-risk patients with cancer, it would be useful in risk stratification. There is also little evidence that "alarm" values of serum lactate (such as ,/=4 mmol/L) are appropriate for the population of patients with cancer. Methods: This was a continuous retrospective cohort study of approximately two years (2012-2014) at a single, tertiary hospital ED; 5,440 ...
The study reveals that daily underage drinking-related visits to hospital emergency departments are 87 percent higher during the Fourth of July weekend than they are on an average day in July. The report estimates that on an average day in July, there are 502 hospital emergency department visits involving underage alcohol use. For the three day Fourth of July weekend however, the number of daily hospital emergency department visits jumps to 938.. "Underage drinking is not a harmless right of passage. It has far-reaching consequences. In addition to emergency department visits, injuries, arrests and embarrassment, 5,000 deaths in people under age 21 are linked to alcohol each year," said SAMHSA Administrator Pamela S. Hyde, J.D.

To help parents make the tough job of raising children a little easier, SAMHSA provides an online action plan to help parents talk with their children about expectations regarding alcohol ...
Emergency departments may be a useful information source to describe the demographics and clinical characteristics of patients with acute cocaine-related medical problems. We therefore conducted a retrospective analysis of 165 acute, laboratory-confirmed cocaine intoxications admitted to an urban emergency department in Switzerland between January 2007 and March 2011. A total of 165 patients with a mean age of 32 years were included. Most patients were male (73%) and unemployed (65%). Only a minority (16%) had abused cocaine alone while 84% of the patients had used at least one additional substance, most commonly ethanol (41%), opioids (38%), or cannabis (36%) as confirmed by their detection in blood samples. The most frequently reported symptoms were chest pain (21%), palpitations (19%), anxiety (36%) and restlessness (36%). Psychiatric symptoms were present in 64%. Hypertension and tachycardia were observed in 53% and 44% of the patients, respectively. Severe poisonings only occurred in patients with

Results 987 patients were enrolled. 36% of the TM and TA readings differed by 0.5°C or more from rectal temperatures, 50% of oral temperatures. TM measures were most precise-the SD of the difference from rectal was 0.4°C TM, and 0.6°C for oral and TA (p,0.001). The sensitivities of a 38°C cutpoint on oral, TM and TA measures to detect a rectal temperature of 38°C or higher were: 37.0%, 68.3% and 71.1%, respectively (oral vs TM and TA p,0.001). The corresponding specificities were 99.4%, 98.2% and 92.3% (oral, TM and TA) with oral specificity significantly higher than the other two methods (p,0.01).

Prior to the adoption of the SBI model in the community hospital ED, a medical record review revealed that alcohol screening only occurred in 50 percent of patients, and of those, only 23 percent of the positive screens were referred for an alcohol intervention. In the study, during the time period when the research assistant was present in the ED, 90 percent of eligible patients were screened, and 71 percent of those patients were then evaluated by ED staff. Further, 38 percent of screened patients met the screening criteria, with 77 percent of the patients who met the criteria being correctly identified by ED staff and referred to the research assistant for the brief intervention. One month after the research assistant was no longer present in the ED, a repeat medical record review found documented alcohol screening had returned to the 50 percent level ...

If the project is successful, five years from now the emergency room will not look much different than it does today, with the exception of a series of electronic kiosks near the registration desk, similar to those that most airlines have installed at their check-in desks, along with special "smart" chairs and a mobile robot or two monitoring patients in the waiting room.. When a patient arrives in the ER, the first thing he or she must do is register. Today, this is handled by a registration clerk. In the proposed system, the clerk would direct the patient (or attending family members) to a robot assistant in the form of a kiosk. The robot assistant would guide them through the ...
Louisville Courier-Journal. Changes in Medicaid program An Oct. 27 article, "Medicaid to curb ER payments," outlined the states plan to implement changes in the Medicaid program, including the decision to stop paying for "non-emergency" visits to hospital emergency departments. While this decision may appear sensible on the surface, it ignores the complex realities related to this issue. First, the perception that there is a significant amount of "non-emergency" care provided in emergency departments is incorrect. The overwhelming majority of emergency care provided is for the treatment of emergency medical conditions. Additionally, federal law mandates that all patients who seek care at an emergency department are provided a medical screening to determine if an emergency condition exists. The vast majority of Medicaid patients only come to the emergency department when they believe an emergency medical condition might exist.. There are more effective ways for the state to address this issue. ...
Always ahead of the curve, the UMC Adult Emergency Department has had a physician-in-triage program since 2009. Medical director J.D. McCourt, M.D. and assistant medical director David Obert, D.O. redesigned the triage process in 2011, with the goal of having patients evaluated by a physician as soon as possible after arrival. Termed Rapid Medical Assessment (RMA), this streamlined process provides improved patient care and safety while addressing critical issues of ED wait time and overcrowding. The key to success is surrounding the patient with a triage team with the authority and tools to make a rapid assessment, initiate care orders and determine the next steps in evaluation and management- before patients are even brought back to an ED room. The RMA process has greatly improved the door-to-doctor time for patients presenting to the Adult ED. ...

Declaring a National Emergency Concerning the Southern Border of the United States (Proclamation 9844)[115] - seeks to divert $8 billion of funds, which were previously allocated to other programs, to build a wall on the southern border of the United States, which the order calls a "major entry point for criminals, gang members, and illicit narcotics" into the United States.[116][117][118] This emergency declaration is the first since the passage of the National Emergencies Act in which the president sought to take funds for which Congress previously denied appropriation, and the first time both houses of Congress passed a bill declaring the emergency terminated, sending it to the president for his signature.[119] ...
Australia Day 2015 is particularly significant for Fremantle Hospital Emergency Department (ED) staff as it is the last time theyll provide emergency care on a public holiday, with the department scheduled to close at 7am on Tuesday 3 February 2015..

Tuberculosis infection control in a South African rural regional hospital emergency centre: Prioritisation for patients and healthcare workers
Arterial blood gas analysis2 and calculation of alveolar-arterial oxygen tension difference3 are not reliable tools to detect patients who have PE. The principal blood-screening test has become the d-dimer assay. d-dimer testing is highly sensitive and has a very high negative predictive value, so it is an excellent screening test for emergency department patients. At Brigham and Womens Hospitals Emergency Department, with 1106 consecutive assays for suspected PE, the sensitivity was 97% and the negative predictive value was 99.6%.4 Similar results have been obtained in other emergency departments.5 Initial evaluation and testing should be completed within several hours in the emergency department setting. At that point, the decision to proceed with direct chest imaging for PE must ensue. d-dimer is less useful for patients who are already hospitalized because the levels are elevated in many illnesses that mimic PE, such as pneumonia and myocardial infarction. d-dimer levels are also elevated ...

Three years ago, patients waited more than two hours to see a physician after arriving at the emergency room at the Aventura Hospital and Medical Center (AHMC). Today, the average wait time to see an ER doctor is consistently less than 10 minutes.

EPIDEMIOLOGY: Cocaine use is common. Cocaine intoxication is frequently associated with emergency department presentation for related complaints (chest pain) or indirectly related complaints (trauma). Severe toxicity is less common. Body stuffers (patients who rapidly ingest small to moderate amounts of cocaine in an attempt to avoid arrest) are common. Body packers (patients who ingest large quantities of cocaine in an attempt to smuggle the cocaine for later distribution) are occasionally seen in locations where international travel is common ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Early Treatment in Emergency Department Patients with Acute Heart Failure. T2 - Does Time Matter?. AU - Chang, Anna Marie. AU - Pang, Peter S.. AU - Butler, Javed. AU - Storrow, Alan B.. AU - Levy, Phillip D.. AU - Lindenfeld, Jo Ann. AU - Collins, Sean P.. PY - 2019/2/15. Y1 - 2019/2/15. N2 - Purpose of Review: Acute heart failure accounts for over one million hospital discharges annually. Current guidelines suggest treatments for AHF should begin "without delay" but this time interval has not been clearly defined. Recent Findings: Data suggest that certain treatments such as earlier treatment with diuretics and vasodilators may improve patient symptom relief, morbidity, and mortality. Secondary analyses of clinical trials of novel treatments under development have not shown similar results. Summary: The data are equivocal regarding the impact of early treatment in AHF on in-hospital and long-term morbidity and mortality. Improved clinical trial designs will help answer when and ...

Results Of 18 902 all-cause ED presentations, 3220 (17.0%) were due to a fall. Among fallers, 35.4% had one or more ED presentations and 20.3% had had one or more hospital admissions in the preceding 12 months. Fall-related ED presentation led directly to hospital admission in 42.7% of the cases, the majority of which (78.0%) received acute care only (length of stay-14.4 days for men and 13.7 days for women) and the remaining cases underwent further inpatient rehabilitation (length of stay 35.6 days for men and 30.1 days for women). After hospitalisation, 9.5% of patients became first-time residents of long-term care facilities. All fall-related ED presentations and hospitalisations cost a total of A$11 241 387 over the study period. ...

By the time Cameron Shearing arrived at the South Shore Hospital Emergency Department (ED) during a December snowstorm, he wasnt breathing. He didnt have much time. The two-year-old had aspirated a chocolate-covered pretzel, which sent tiny bits of material into his lungs.. The odds of a good outcome were not high. Pretzel is one of the worst foods to aspirate for two reasons: The small pieces can block multiple small airways, and the salt, which is very irritating, causes a lot of inflammation.. "Cameron was one of the sickest patients I ever cared for as an emergency physician. I did everything I could within my scope of practice, but he needed the tools and expertise of pediatric subspecialists," recalls Galina Lipton, MD, from Boston Childrens Department of Emergency Medicine, who was staffing the South Shore Hospital emergency room that evening.. Lipton worked on Cameron for an hour, staying at his side as she stabilized him by securing his airway and inserting a breathing tube. She was ...

No Wait: Patients with severe trauma or chest pain, for example, have life threatening conditions that must be seen immediately. They cant wait. We count on our other emergency patients to understand the reason for this.. Variable Wait: Once you have been evaluated by a triage nurse, if they determine you do not have a life threatening emergency, average weight times to see a doctor and receive treatment vary based on your level of illness. We understand you are in the Emergency Center because you are uncomfortable and even frightened, and we will do our best to keep you as comfortable and reassured as possible while you are waiting. Contrary to what you might think, longer wait times are actually good news, because it means your illness is not judged to be threatening to your life. We are confident you will agree it is reasonable to expect the sickest patients go to the front of the line ...

The Drug Abuse Warning Network (DAWN) survey is designed to capture data on emergency department (ED) episodes that are induced by or related to the use of an illicit, prescription, or over-the-counter drug. For purposes of this collection, a drug episode is an ED visit that was induced by or related to the use of an illegal drug or the nonmedical use of a legal drug for patients aged six years and older. A drug mention refers to a substance that was mentioned during a drug-related ED episode. Because up to four drugs can be reported for each drug abuse episode, there are more mentions than episodes in the data. Individual persons may also be included more than once in the data. Within each facility participating in DAWN, a designated reporter, usually a member of the emergency department or medical records staff, was responsible for identifying drug-related episodes and recording and submitting data on each case. An episode report was submitted for each patient visiting a DAWN emergency ...

It is the worlds centre for the coordination of international emergency preparedness and response assistance.
My wife and I have long believed in supporting initiatives that help to reduce wait times for families in crisis," said Mr. Mistretta. "We know volume is a challenge in the ED - but a good challenge to have. When the doctors, nurses, and even the Chairman himself rolls up his sleeves and gets involved in the care of patients outside of the physical walls of the Department, there really is no greater commitment than that.". This is the third momentous gift that NYU Winthrop has received from the Mistrettas. In 2008, the Hospital dedicated the Phyllis & Nathan J. Mistretta Emergency Diagnostic Imaging Center within the Emergency Department. And in 2006, the Hospital named its dedicated emergency cardiac care facility the Mistretta Chest Pain Unit.. "The Mistrettas have been long-time, loyal supporters over the years. The longevity of their giving is really significant in demonstrating their belief in a Hospital that continues to uphold the highest standards of healthcare when serving the community ...

OBJECTIVE We assessed the relationship between emergency department (ED) crowding and delays in care in patients presenting with abdominal pain who receive abdominal computed tomography (CT). METHODS Prospective cohort study of adults who presented over a 1-year period to 2 urban academic EDs with abdominal pain and received CT. Each subject had 3 validated crowding measures assigned at enrollment (ED census, waiting room number, number of admitted patients). These were normalized to quartiles to signify least to most crowded. The Cuzick test was used for trend and log-linear regression and tested the association between ED crowding and time from triage to CT read. The time interval was further decomposed into triage to room, room to CT order, and order to CT read times. The adjusted analysis controlled for age, sex, race, pain score, time of day, triage level, and site. RESULTS 767 patients were enrolled (mean age, 44 +/- 17 years; 61% female; 60% black). Median time from triage to CT read was 375
