ED patients are sometimes over assessed and there are options available to overcome this issue .Implementation of push/pull model from within the wards may reduce the time taken in waiting for a bed, as there was found to be a high degree of correlation between discharge times in the ward and long waiting times within ED
A 3-2-1 analysis by diagnosis also clearly identified that the delay was from the time a bed was requested until a bed became available.
