Incomplete or inaccurate triage examination in an emergency department can result in delays, which could compromise patient outcomes. Dr. Johnson discusses the outcomes of her study on triage interruptions and how they affect the triage process. A significant difference was seen in triage duration between interrupted and uninterrupted interviews. Understanding the impact of interruptions on patient outcomes allows nurses and other health care providers to develop interventions to mitigate the impact.
