The hospital implemented a discharge resource room (DRR) in order to free inpatient space for emergency department (ED) patients. Patients are moved to the ground floor DRR when they are ready to leave the hospital. This provides a comfortable space for them to receive discharge instructions from a registered nurse while wait for transportation to arrive.
