Performing triage requires the ability to make quick, evidence-based decisions based on limited information. Nurses are often required to preform triage either over the phone, in urgent care settings, in the emergency department, and even in office settings. This reference provides over 200 triage protocols for evaluating a person’s symptoms. Each symptom entry lists pertinent questions grouped by urgency level and advises the clinician when and where the patient should be referred. This book is a need to have, comprehensive, user-friendly resource for every nurse who performs triage.
