Abstract

Public health is the health status of a population and uses different approaches to maintain the health of the population. Emergency departments play a key role in public health. They are complex and difficult due to many different factors. ABC Memorial Hospital had an emergency department that was inefficient and consistently failed to meet the time requirements they had set for themselves. The author was given opportunity to observe ABC Memorial’s ED and present the findings to the hospital’s Nurse Executive Forum. The purpose of this essay is to explore the overall importance of patient flow and patient satisfaction in the emergency department of a hospital. Throughout the essay the author will research and explore best practices, how to improve patient flow and satisfaction, and technology that helps improve the emergency department. The author will also provide the observations and recommendations given to ABC Memorial Hospital.
