Counseling patients about other options for nonurgent care can help ease the pressure on your ED. This process has the potential to decompress your ED by as much as 40%. Implementing post-screening counseling will put pressure on your competitors to follow suit. If the patient does not have an emergency condition, seek confirmation of payer source before treatment.
