Advanced Emergency Nursing Journal . 35(3):183-184, July/September 2013.

The Editors opine that boarding of inpatients in the ED impacts not only their own care and that of others, but how emergency nurses think, work, and derive work satisfaction. This impacts career longevity. Costs are driven up. There has been worsening, not improvement in the factors of boarding over a decade.
