RCEM National ED Snapshot Survey
Every two weeks from October onwards, we are asking Clinical Leads to help us build a picture of how EDs are coping. Our snapshot surveys will provide real time feedback for the College around key issues which can be used in our advocacy efforts, particularly during covid.
We are asking three core questions each week and will add in supplementary questions where required according to changes to the situation. The core questions will initially focus on crowding. They are:
- How often has your ED been holding ambulances in the last week?
- How often have you been providing care for patients in non-designated areas such as corridors in the last week?
- How often have you been unable to maintain social distancing for patients within your overall footprint in the last week (including waiting and clinical areas)?
Reports can be found below. For further information on our snapshot survey please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
