The nation's population of older adults is increasing, but the system of emergency medicine isn't optimally designed for their specific, complex and multi-layered needs. So what can the field do to better adapt to an aging population? Medical support frameworks for older adults remain inadequate, particularly in the emergency department. In today's discussion about older adult care in the ED, Marie Cleary-Fishman, AHA's vice president of clinical quality, is joined by Dr. Kevin Biese. Dr. Biese serves as the University of North Carolina Hospitals Associate Professor of Emergency Medicine, as well as its Co-Director of the Division of Geriatric Emergency Medicine.

Health bosses are worried patients won't turn up to emergency departments when they need to, as long waits and overcrowding continues. EDs in most main centre hospitals are working at winter levels of busy-ness and there have been some high-profile incidents of people leaving before they're seen and getting sicker - or dying. GPs say some patients are avoiding emergency departments but urge them not to make that call alone. Health correspondent Rowan Quinn reports.

Today we have Mike Laughlin who is Canada's only above knee amputee firefighter! He has such a remarkable story and you will not want to miss this one. He is a two time major crash and trauma survivor from the Kingston, Ontario area! He has a knack for adrenaline fuelled sports including 4 wheeling, snowmobiling, dirt biking, and riding his Harley! As a farm boy from Joyceville, Mike Laughlin thought he was invincible. “Growing up I threw hay, played every sport imaginable, and drove my dirt bike hard and fast,” he says, “but I never broke a bone in my body until my first accident.” Mike is a two-time survivor of traumatic injury. The first, a snowmobile accident on Loughborough Lake in the winter of 2007, resulted in his left leg being snapped at the femur, “dangling like rubber.” “When I finally made it to the Emergency Department at KGH that night,” says Mike. “I didn't know the hospital would be home for the next month, or that I would leave with so much metal: a titanium femur, a titanium kneecap, 33 pins and screws holding my tibia, fibula, knee and femur together, a titanium forearm and 11 screws holding that together.” Nearly ten years later, in June 2016, Mike found himself fighting for his life again on Loughborough Lake when a deer unexpectedly darted in front of his motorcycle. “I remember the sound of the muffler scraping the ground, the feeling of the back tire hitting the gravel shoulder and the moment she just shot out from under me. “It's hard to describe all the thoughts that go through your mind when you're lying in a ditch, with a broken body.” says Mike. “My instincts as a firefighter took over. I flipped the Harley off of me.” When he looked down, Mike's right leg was gone. “My tibia and fibula were in the ground like lawn darts. I threw my helmet up on the road so a passing car might see me. I made a tourniquet, pulled my phone out of my pocket and dialed my fire department.” Social Media for Mike Laughlin: Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/firefighteramp/ Here are some of the topics we touch upon: Pain killer addiction Partner committing suicide Two time major crash Survivor Positive mindset Redemption Courage --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/lightofsuccess/message

A Wellington woman is speaking out about her shock at the state of the hospital's emergency department when she was there earlier this month. She says a nurse handed her the Health Minister's contacts so she could tell him what she'd seen. The woman took her teenage daughter to the ED with pneumonia and says she saw people taking up every available space. Many of them vulnerable and facing long waits. The woman has asked not to be identified to protect her daughter's privacy. She spoke to Corin Dann. In a written response, the Health Minister Andrew Little says he's not aware of any queries that have come into his office via cards handed out at the ED. He says he is updated daily on patient demand and is discussing the pressures on the system with health officials weekly. He says the government has funded more health roles to help with staffing shortages.

Over the weekend, the Antrim Area hospital in Northern Ireland had to close its emergency department, after it had reached capacity. A major incident was declared in the Northern Health Trust at the weekend because the situation was "unsafe," says Jennifer Welsh, the chief executive of the trust. A major incident means there are too many patients for staff to deal with safely and ambulances were turned away.

The woman turned up to the hospital in June with a headache but left a short time later in the face of huge delays and later died. The independent review found only half of all patients are seen within six hours. However, it could not say whether the woman would have survived if she had been seen by staff.

An emergency department leader says the increased overcrowding at EDs has been happening year on year and is entirely predictable. A report into Middlemore Hospital's ED found only half of all patients at the department are seen within six hours, describing it as "dysfunctional, overcrowded and unsafe". It follows the death of a woman who left because of delays in being seen. Dr John Bonning, spokesperson for the College of Emergency Medicine, told Morning Report that the solutions lie in the whole hospital, not solely in ED. He says hospitals like Middlemore running at 98 per cent capacity can't function properly. Dr Bonning says more money is needed for workers, and new hospitals.

No one wants to go to the emergency room, and ER nurses must rapidly diagnose and treat patients whose condition may quickly deteriorate in high-pressure circumstances. The practice called “throughpush” creates an additional pressure to get patients out of the ER. Add to this shortage of personnel and patients languishing in hallways for days, and you have an environment that creates infinite opportunities for misdiagnosis and missed diagnosis. Allison Dickson, a highly experienced ER nurse and LNC, breaks down the details of how LNCs can discover deviations from the standard of care. Allison says, “Everybody knows in the emergency room, you're not sick until you're sick, and then you're really sick.” She emphasizes that triage skills are much more important than trauma skills in the ER. Some of the typical errors she describes include failing to account for patient's weight in calculating medicine dosages, checking blood sugar levels for diabetics, and failing to do tests for patients whose medical history requires them. For those LNCs without ER backgrounds, she recommends reaching out to other LNCs for advice and adds that, while the pressure of ER nursing is high, it's still nursing, and a good nurse can be guided by the sense that something is wrong You won't be in a rush to go to the ER after hearing or reading this podcast, but you will have a good sense of how to search for medical errors. Join me in this episode of Legal Nurse Podcast to learn about The Risky Emergency Department - Allison Dickson Why is an emergency room background helpful for a legal nurse consultant? How does the speed of patient processing in the ER contribute to malpractice? Who monitors hospital performance in the U.S.? Why is triage expertise more important than trauma expertise in the ER?

Your Presenter of The Risky Emergency Department - Allison Dickson Allison Dickson has been an RN for almost 18 years. She started her nursing career in the Emergency Department. She has worked in inner city, academic, level 1 trauma centers as well as small community hospitals. After 10 years working in Emergency Departments, and her oldest son being diagnosed with autism, she wanted a job with a more stable schedule. That is how she happened into Quality Improvement. She fell in love with tracking data, learning regulations, and educating staff on the 'why'. After being in Quality Improvement leadership for 4-5 years and participating in the behind the scenes activity she did not like what she saw. She became frustrated with corporate healthcare she sought other avenues to use her skills. She had heard of legal nurse consulting and had taken a course a few years prior.
