Emergency Department Operations

ED Operations

Dr. Brian Eastridge

The STRAC Regional Emergency Department Operations (ED Ops) committee is charged with overseeing all aspects of the clinical and operational issues that impact Emergency Departments in Trauma Service Area – P (TSA-P). This includes, but is not limited to ED Diversion, EMS Interaction, sharing of best practices, and identification of issues that have impact to the emergency patient. The committee works collaboratively with the trauma, cardiac, stroke, and emergency preparedness (EHDG) committees to ensure continuity of care for those time-dependent pathologies. The group is multi-disciplinary multi-organizational, and will utilize collaboration and consensus as the model for decision-making.
