The Impact of ED-Based Short Stay Units

Short Stay Units in EDs play a vital role in reducing overcrowding by influencing key outcomes such as ED wait times and hospital costs, particularly when patients are transitioned to inpatient care. However, these units can face challenges, including backlogs that impact the timely care of patients who could otherwise be admitted or discharged. In such situations, having access to senior physicians, especially overnight, can significantly expedite care.

Key Scenarios for Short Stay Units Include:

  • Patients needing less acute treatments.
  • Patients requiring diagnostic investigations like MRI, biopsies, or endoscopy.
  • Patients needing referrals to social services for safe community discharge.
  • The Impact of ED-Based Short Stay Units
