Situations that develop suddenly and threaten the life of a person or the integrity of life are defined as emergency health conditions. According to the International Emergency Medicine Federation, although acute diseases or injuries are specified as issues that emergency medicine will intervene, the common problem in many countries is the patient density in emergency departments. .
What is Triage?
The word triage is derived from the English words "Triage" and French "Trier" and means "segregation, classification, prioritization". Triage is the task of determining the intervention priorities of those who need medical intervention. The current practice worldwide in Emergency Departments is primarily to triage patients. Thanks to an effective triage at the entrances of the Emergency Service, the intervention of patients in critical situations can be done without delay. Thanks to the triage process, patients who are in critical condition can reach their necessary examination and treatment needs as soon as possible, and hospitals also use their resources effectively.
In Ethical Life Medical Center Emergency Service T.C. Triage is applied in accordance with the relevant Regulations and Communiqués of the Ministry of Health. In our hospital, all Emergency Service personnel have received triage training and these trainings are repeated periodically.
Emergency Services are the mirrors of hospitals. All patient welcoming, diagnosis, hospitalization, operation, intensive care, discharge, in short, all diagnosis and treatment processes in hospitals are present in emergency services or are intertwined. In addition, Emergency Services should be structured in a way that they can provide all the necessary medical and social services to emergency patients who are admitted to the hospital uninterruptedly, since they are one of the units that operate continuously for 24 hours.
Since the reasons for the arrival of the patients who come to the Emergency Service are generally unexpected disorders, the patients are also worried apart from their arrival complaints. This anxiety is when a situation for which he does not know the reason leads him to a place he does not know and to people he does not know. Emergency Departments must be designed to help patients feel comfortable and safe. Doctors, nurses, administrative staff and assistant healthcare personnel working in Emergency Departments should also behave in a way that will help eliminate these potential concerns of patients.
