Regions Hospital Emergency Medicine Team
FOCUS: Improving time to analgesia when entering the Emergency Department at Regions Hospital.
OBJECTIVE: Working with communities to design increased awareness of patients served and their needs.
HOW WE WILL MEASURE OUR SUCCESS: By a reduction in disparities between groups by measuring average time to analgesia pre and post intervention through EPIC.
GOAL: We hope to improve disparities in the average time from arrival in the ED to time of first dose analgesic given for patients of color with specific extremity injuries by 10% by 12/31/2011.
