20th Annual Southeastern Seaboard Emergency Nurses Symposium

Virginia Beach, Virginia

March 21-23, 2019

On March 22, Nicholas Chmielewski and Jason Moretz discussed “Boarders, Boarders Everywhere – Who’s Gonna Pay for Them and Why I Should Care?” Topics included basic macroeconomic principles and why improved productivity through positive technological change is important for economic prosperity and health; the definition of “ED Boarder” and methodologies used to calculate boarder time; and accounting for nursing staff hours to care for boarding patients.

Mr. Moretz also presented “Models of ED Arrival Processes: Which Is Best for You?” He discussed the three models of emergency department arrival processes: medical screening exam and discharge, provider-in-triage, and split-flow; the synergistic effect each model has with one another and their challenges; and which model(s) may be right for an ED.
