RANSON, W.Va. - In an effort to decrease patient wait time in the emergency department, Jefferson Memorial Hospital recently added a mobile care unit outside the emergency department. The unit, which is staffed by an emergency medicine trained nurse practitioner supported by additional nursing staff, adds four treatment rooms to the emergency department. Patients who come to the emergency department with less serious conditions are being treated in the new area. "The goal is to get our patients treated more quickly and then released, which should ultimately improve patient satisfaction," said Tina Coad, executive consultant for emergency services.

Dr. R Adams Cowley, considered a pioneer in emergency medicine and shock trauma treatment, established the Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, the nation's first and only trauma hospital, in 1969. Cowley was one of the first people to experiment with open-heart surgery in the U.S., performing operations before the heart-lung machine was widely used, according to the Shock Trauma Web site. Despite his expertise and success, some of his patients died from shock, not always immediately, but sometimes within days or weeks.

Let's say you end up in the emergency department with chest pains. If you're conscious you can tell the doctor what medications you take - if you remember them all. If you're unconscious, hospital personnel might look on your person for a list of medications. A person in their 40s or 50s with chest pains - there could be a lot of different causes for that, said Dr. Stephen Kotch, chairman of the Department of Emergency Medicine for Washington County Hospital. Patients who can provide a list of their medications or a detailed medical history can help the medical staff narrow down the likely diagnosis and target tests and diagnostics that should be run immediately, Kotch said.
