Product Description

It’s not just the physicians’ and nurses’ job to move people through the ER.

A patient in an Illinois hospital died while waiting to be seen in the ER – and the death was ruled a homicide. But even when outcomes aren’t that extreme, long ER times lead to poor patient outcomes and terrible PR.

Don’t accept long wait times as a fact of life. Learn how to deal with a shortage of trained personnel and other roadblocks that affect your wait times significantly in this 60-minute teleconference with expert speaker Ted Kloth. He’ll discuss operational methods that have -- and haven’t -- worked for hospitals and how to save time, money and your patient satisfaction.

Who should attend: Staff nurses, supervisors, managers, case managers, risk management personnel, and ED directors.

Here's what you will learn:

  • Smart ways to tackle the big 3: Time, money, and patient satisfaction.
  • Why your whole facility must be "bought in," not "brought in," when it comes to moving patients.
  • How ancillary and supportive services can contribute to the success of any plan.
  • Patient safety: Where it sits in the ER wait time controversy.
  • What an ER is really for -- and how to address expectations in patient education.
  • The #1 key to running a successful ED. Hint: Think short time.
