I am putting together a lecture on Pediatric EM Quality Assurance.
I am looking to list which CQI indicators are used in the Pediatric Emergency Department.
At my hospital (Pediatric ED within a general ED),
we review the following
returns to the ED within 72 hours
significant occurrences (Deaths, resuscitations)
infant fever ( LP, time to antibiotics)
pediatric pain medication in orthopedic injuries
pediatric minor HI (indication for CT)
I am interested in cataloging which indicators other departments review and track as part of their ongoing CQI program.
I would be happy to share the final list.
