My colleagues and I in connecticut are tryng to develop statewide guidelines for triage of patients with sickle cell disease. These guidlines will target both adult and pedatric facilities.
There appears to be a wide range of approaches to this issue especially in adult EDS
As a first step I would like to get all EDs in our state assgning all sickle cell patients who present with pain to level 2 triage status. I am looking for published triage guidelines from national/international organizations which list sickle cell pain as a level 2 triage criteria. Please contact me if you know of any. Thanks.
