Abstract

Hospital diversion is a critical issue for hospitals that affects safety and overall patient care. At Wishard Hospital, a public hospital with a level 1 trauma center, we critically reviewed our diversion policies and implemented a series of changes. This hospital-wide process significantly decreased our diversion rates, thereby providing consistent and safe care to our community.
