Recent reports suggest that from January 1, hospitals will be not be allowed to divert ambulances to any other hospital, which may be a major step taken forward to tackle the problem of ramping.
It has been reported that the declaration of new proposals to be implemented, which will guide hospitals and ambulances to treat patients, was made by Health Minister Lawrence Springborg, following the release of Queensland Health-commissioned report.
It has been administered that Metropolitan Emergency Department Access Initiative put forth 15 recommendations, which have all been approved.
Mr. Springborg asserted that these new plans include a proper outline of how emergency departments have to collaborate with Queensland Ambulance Service, that too in a better way, thus providing the patients with the best possible services.
He added: "Change will include introduction of senior level Clinical Initiative Nurses to the waiting room of all major emergency departments. Patients must also be handed over from QAS to hospital staff within 30 minutes".
Further, Mr. Springborg highlighted that once all these new plans are brought to action, then there would be no need of hospital bypass. It has been emphasized that the mechanism of using bypass is simply unacceptable in case patient is in need of urgent care and treatment.
