To everyone on the list,
A number of years ago I saw a report (I believe it was published in Pediatric Emergency Care) on data regarding Peds EM metrics.
Does anyone know of any recent published data on the average:
Patients/bed/year (variability depending on acuity level and admission rate)
RN or FTE staffed hour/pt visit
Nurse to Patient ratio
How about differences between single physician staffing model and those with double coverage or use of residents and/or MLP's?
For those already using CPOE, can you comment on how this has affected the above metrics?
Thanks in advance for your comments.
