2019 PDC Summit


Collaborating for a New Type of ED Space


Mar 20, 2019 9:45am ‐ Mar 20, 2019 10:45am


Credits: None available.

Description

This presentation focuses on the growing interest in the low-acuity patient pod concept and the challenges of getting an idea into the marketplace and the Guidelines. The presenters highlight the collaboration between an owner, design firms, and FGI to catalyze change. Currently, EDs treat low-acuity patients in noncompliant smaller spaces, often co-located with others and without privacy, staff oversight, or sufficient hand-washing stations. AHJs have no source to regulate minimum requirements, and these spaces have no reference in the Guidelines.

Learning Objectives:

1.) Describe how these entities came together to champion new minimum requirements for an emergency department treatment space specific to low-acuity patients.

2.) Discuss the appropriate patient types and the minimum space and support requirements necessary for provision of care in an ED low-acuity patient treatment station.

3.) Determine the criteria for right-sizing treatment spaces in an ED by reviewing the results of the low-acuity pod charette conducted in 2017.

4.)  Evaluate technologies available for deployment in treatment pods and how they can be used to deliver care without sacrificing patient safety, comfort, or privacy.
