Bedside Triage and Registration

The hospital changed the triage and registration process to create a more fluid, non-linear design for patient care. Under this design, patients are placed in beds immediately and they are registered and seen by the providers as staff becomes available. Patients do not need to be registered in order to see a physician. This design eliminates bottlenecks within the emergency department (ED) and reduces wait times for patients.
