Implemented processes to
ensure all patients presenting to our ER with a complaint of Chest Pain will receive aspirin upon his/her arrival. We are
ensuring that patients indicating Chest Pain during registration are given to Triage Nurse to obtain EKG upon arrival.  And the EKG
is read by MD during triage interview.  SFB implemented a vertical ER.  Any patient who mentions chest pain upon entry to the ER immediately receives an EKG in a private triage area reserved for vertical patients.   The only patients not currently meeting the standard are those that do not mention chest pain until well into their visit. Implemented:  'Direct Bedding'- During normal capacity hours,
patients are placed directly in a treatment zone.  'Nurse First'- During high capacity hours, patients entering lobby are met upon arrival
by a registered nurse.  'In Route EKG’s'- Digital EKG images are produced and transmitted by EMS prior to patient arrival in the ER.
