Challenges with Critically ill Patients Boarding Outside the ICU
For patients remaining in the ED 2+ hours after the decision to "admit", are you experiencing any of the following?
Critically ill patients boarding in the ED due to lack of capacity in the ICU.
Critically ill patients boarding in the ED due to a frequent influx of transfers.
ED boarders creating an inefficient workflow requiring multiple consultations in lieu of delayed access to an intensivist.
Frustration from ED staff associated with "Boarder" issues, such as dealing with the stress of caring for critically ill patients and managing their transfer communications.
Concerns with increased probability of adverse outcomes associated with delayed access to intensivist consults.
How We Can Help
Our Intensivists will help improve and sustain standards of care, easing the burden of patients and clinical teams challenged with ICU capacity constraints.
We provide Intensivist-led Critical Care coverage of ED Boarders unloading a significant portion of the burden ED teams face with this complex population of patients.
Our Intensives will consult for admission and manage the care of ED Boarder patients until they are treated/downgraded, handed off to the ICU, or if necessary relocated to another hospital.
We partner with the ED to treat or transfer the patient, which eliminates multiple consultations across departments and streamlines workflow efficiency.
Acting as a bridge between the ED & ICU our Intensivists are skilled at streamlining communications that often create stress among teams.
