Emergency department crowding and boarding are major public health issues in our nation. Over the past decade, there has been a large literature generated demonstrating the relationship between ED crowding and boarding and patient safety issues. Potential solutions do exist, but implementation requires teamwork, leadership, and finding the “right” idea.
Sign up for this 90-minute webinar by Jesse M. Pines, M.D., M.B.A., M.S.C.E., F.A.C.E.P. who will describe the current state of evidence on the relationship between ED crowding and boarding and important patient safety outcomes, such as adverse events, complications, and mortality. He will also describe several potential solutions to mitigate the relationship between ED crowding and boarding, patient safety, and strategies that hospitals can use to restructure operations and reduce crowding altogether.
