Usability of ER² by emergency room nurses


A good predictive tool for age-related short terms adverse ER events should be based on reliable (i.e., objective, standardized and communicable) and valid clinical information, which can easily be easily acquired in a busy ER setting and usable by all nurses. Such a tool can serve as a common mode of communication between professionals in order to provide timely and helpful information, allowing for an efficient continuum of care in the ER and timely appropriate discharges. ER² usability by ER nurses has never been examined in Quebec.
