We would like to take this opportunity to thank the WM Graduate workforce who assisted in the successful implementation of Rapid Antigen Testing in the EDs. We look forward to supporting them with the addition of the Ambulance Offload role.
ED Approval CT Pathways
There has been a total of 220 studies ordered through the pathways since they were introduced two weeks ago. This equates to 220 less phone calls between radiology and ED! Of the 220 orders, 181 were completed successfully. A review of the 39 cancelled orders will be undertaken to look for opportunities to refine the process.
Initial feedback has been positive from both ED and radiology.
The QRG can be found here.
