Performance and Quality
The staff at Emergency Staffing Solutions is available for in‐house consults with medical staff and the development of team oriented patient satisfaction initiatives. In concert with the hospital, ESS will help implement HCAHPS with the goal of increasing efficiency. The byproducts of increased operational efficiency are reduced patient wait times, lower percentages of patients leaving against medical advice (AMA) and fewer patients leaving without being seen (LWBS). We are constantly doing quality assurance and measuring performance throughout all emergency department areas to ensure excellence through your facility.
ESS performs frequent chart audits to ensure all appropriate admissions are captured and that all patients are in the correct status; maximizing ED throughput. With more efficient processing and capture of patients from the ED along with community outreach, you will see more successful outcomes resolved. Your facility will thrive and reverse an outbound trend of patients to the larger urban facilities.
Our nurse case managers and corporate medical directors review chart samplings to determine over/underutilization issues. If an issue is identified, we provide training and tools for resolution and improvement.
We provide education for case managers and physicians to improve documentation and assist with getting the patient into the correct disposition status. ESS also provides RAC audits.
Emergency Staffing Solutions identifies clinical leaders to liaise between ESS, physicians and facility staff. ESS will identify from its clinical talent pool or from clinical talents already in place to be a liaison between ESS, physicians and the facility staff. This medical director will attend staff and departmental meeting to stay abreast, disseminate information and provide oversite recommendations.
We work with nursing and case management to formulate plans from admission to post-discharge. With our program, facility readmissions can be significantly reduced within 30 days.
