The in-hospital patients are the patients that are already at the hospital (or in a waiting room) when the exercise starts. It is up to the participants in an ETS exercise to decide how to manage those patients. For example, send home, send to a ward or ICU. The patients can be evaluated according to surge capacity outcome and can be evaluated with an evaluation template if the decisions made for the patient put them at risk and/or if the hospital resources are over utilized.
On the front side is a short health history and anamnesis. The back side of the patients show vital signs, A-E.
In the material is included a template of with detailed information to be used by the ETS instructor if the students for example send a patient to he X-ray and need answer of the outcome from the X-ray.
The In-hospital patient bank for ED is available in medium set (100 patients) and small set (50 patients).
