From Lehigh Valley Live:
Patients will enter the ER through a small lobby where they will meet a registrar and be escorted to a new rapid-assessment hub where a doctor, nurse and others will focus on a patient for diagnosis and triage.
Buckenmyer said studies suggest the typical patient’s wait between entering the facility and speaking to a doctor will drop by 20 to 30 minutes. She added that 20 or 30 minutes doesn’t sound like much, but that front-end uptick in efficiency results in much better overall results for patients.
