For the group,
Does anyone at a facility that receives many transfers (not just necessarily through the ED) have guidelines by which their facility directs these patients? (For example, outlying ED has CT-proven appendicitis --> call to on-call surgeon --> accept to floor if stable).
We are trying to optimize our systems for not only directing these calls, but ensuring they end up where they should (said, not always the ED!).
