Dr Chris Johns: What I’ve learned triaging admissions

Comment

Excellent and sensible advice from Dr Johns. His own confidence is now developing from his current experience. I would agree that over a third do not need admission & can either be discharged or managed as an Outpatient. The key here is to have Acute Physicians with at least 3 times/week urgent access/early discharge clinics available, working closely with these GP's
