This document is intended to assist the general surgical team with specific ED processes
The surgical team will be asked to see some patients directly without an ED doctor reviewing them first. These are:
If the nursing staff are concerned about any patient presenting to the ED they will ask ED medical staff to assist with their initial assessment and treatment irrespective of their planned pathway. This may because they have a high PEWS score, are in pain or need immediate intervention. The Surgical Team should attend ED as soon as possible.
