The Emergency Department is an active 911 receiving unit that sees and treats approximately 33,000 visits/year and has a Fast Track area staffed by NP's. The majority of our admissions to the hospital come through the ED. As a result of this, a major focus is to ensure quick turnaround and throughput between the ED and the inpatient units.
The role of the emergency room nurse (ER RN) is to care for patients suffering from trauma or illness that requires emergency attention. The ER RN must recognize and effectively treat life-threatening conditions, with the ability to deploy rapid assessment and treatment of patients in highly critical situations, particularly during the initial phase of acute illness and trauma, where every second is important. Emergency nurses must possess knowledge about healthcare on general and specific levels and provide quality care to patients of all ages. Additionally, the ER RN must be prepared to treat a wide variety of illnesses and injuries, ranging from a fever to a heart attack.
