Triage and emergency care unit. Is it necessary or indispensable?
Massaia Lamberti G., Roveda G., Boni M.
The priorities of a modern emergency care unit with more than 20000 patients/year are analysed underlining that only a professional organization can offset the increasing demand of the population. The importance of a pre-evaluation of the patients in a triage unit to privilege the real emergency cases is underlined. These emergency units also need an informatic network in a real-time contact with the nearby sanitary structures and the Operative Center. This for a faster hospitalization of the patients who need it. The opportunity to improve the contacts between the family doctor and the Hospital to a better use of the Sanitary System is stressed.
