Emergency pathology needs to be diagnosed as soon as possible and that is why there must be a good relationship between clinicians,
emergency surgeons and radiologists.
Because of this,
the patient’s stay in the emergency department is shortened,
the working time of the operating rooms sped up,
the patient’s symptoms are corrected early,
and the morbidity and mortality of the associated pathology is reduced.
Over the years,
hospital emergency units have become more and more valuable and,
the creation of multidisciplinary committees in this area is essential to improve and propose new action projects when errors are detected.
The emergency department is the only one that operates 24 hours a day,
7 days a week and 365 days a year,
which is why we believe it is essential to have a specific section to assist the large volume of population who come to the emergency department.
For the same reason we believe that the creation of specific emergency sections is a way to improve the care and the future of patients.
In some hospitals,
such as ours,
there is a general emergency surgery section.
The joint work between all “emergency” professionals working is an unequivocal way of giving excellent care to users,
shortening waiting times and therapeutic diagnosis,
all favored by the continuous relationship between these sections that allow us to manage the patient from a global view.
