Step 1 –Triage

It is the process of determining the severity of a patient’s condition. Patients with the most severe emergencies receive immediate treatment. That is why some patients may receive medical care before you, even if they arrived at the ED after you. When you arrive at the Ed. Emergency technicians determine the reason for your visit. A registered nurse might will take your medical history and perform a brief examination of your symptoms. The triage registered nurse might assign you a priority level based on your medical history and current condition according to the following scale:Level 1-Resuscitation;Level 2-emergency;Level 3-Urgent;Level 4-Semi urgent; Level 5-Non urgent

Step 2 –Registration

The registration process is important for two reasons: it lets the ED staff gather information for your patient record and we obtain your consent for treatment. Both are necessary to order diagnostic tests to enable the physician determine the best treatment option for you. Patient access specialists can conduct bedside registration for patients who have been taken directly to a treatment room.

Step 3- Treatment

Every patient who comes to the ED receives treatment from an attending physician or mid level practitioner. Depending on your condition, a registered nurse may start an IV line. The IV line will allow the nursing staff to quickly administer medications or fluids that may be ordered by a physician. A nurse or technician may also take blood or urine samples, or they may send you for an X ray or other imaging test before a physician sees you. Test results help emergency medicine physicians assess your condition. The results could be available within one to two hours, while you are in the ED. However, some test results may require a longer wait.

Step 4 –Reevaluation

An ED physician will reevaluate your condition after they receive your test results because the results may give them additional insight into the type of treatment you need. You know your body. How you feel can be just as important as your test results, so be sure to let physicians or nurses know about any pain or discomfort you may feel. After your reevaluation, the attending physician determines whether you should be admitted to the hospital or treated and sent home.

Step 5- Discharge

Part of our job is to keep you healthy long after you’ve left the ED. All patients receive written home care instructions to follow when discharged. The instructions describe how you can safely care for your wound directions for your prescribed medications and recommendations for follow up medical care. It is important to fully understand all instructions.

Emergencies such as RTA, Acute myocardial infarction and CVA are the most common causes of death and disability in India. Emergency medicine services and proper education on acute care are necessary. In order to inform curriculum design for training programs, and to improve the quality of EM care in India, a better understanding of patient epidemiology and case burden presenting to the ED is needed.
