Assess the nature and severity of callers’ symptoms quickly and confidently, with Telephone Triage Protocols for Nurses, 6th Edition. More than 200 alpha-organized protocols address a wide range of symptoms, disorders and medical emergencies, while the flow chart format leads callers to provide vital Yes or No answers to appropriate questions.
 
This comprehensive manual – a must-have for nurses both new and experienced – offers accurate care recommendations even when client information is limited.

Follow expert direction and make quick, accurate assessments …

NEW and updated protocols offer current best practices and reflect changes in access to medications and health care
Protocols address adult, pediatric, geriatric, maternal/child, home health concerns, current health issues, and communicable disease outbreaks

NEW protocols include arthritis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), elder abuse, stroke symptoms, and Zika virus
Post-operative conditions and considerations have been added to numerous protocols
Expanded appendices include altered mental status, PTSD, suicide prevention, and emergency preparedness

Alpha-organized protocols help you quickly locate topics by symptom or condition

Table of contents by body system helps you quickly locate topics by body system, body part or set of related symptoms
Peer-reviewed by nursing experts
Easy-to-follow question-asking flow chart – Yes or No answers lead to specific care recommendations
Ideal guidance for all nurses, particularly those in triage and ambulatory practice

Sorts life-threatening problems from those not requiring physician or emergency care

Increases consistency of advice and documentation

Nurse Alerts – help the nurse identify potentially life-threatening conditions related to the symptoms and provides additional information to consider when choosing a protocol or triaging the caller’s concern

Symptoms alpha-organized and grouped by level of urgency, addressing injuries, trauma, pain, swelling and other symptoms for:
Body part problems
Body system problems
Chronic and infectious diseases
Behavioral problems
Pediatric-specific problems
Maternal/obstetric specific problems or conditions



Sections under every symptom or condition include:

Key Questions to ask caller
Other Protocols to Consider

Reminder – what to note for proper documentation

Assessment – Yes or No questions to determine the urgency of symptoms or conditions

Actions – clear direction following Yes or No answers to questions

Immediate actions – proven protocols that refer caller to emergency, physician, or at-home care instructions

Home Care Instructions – comprehensive actions to take before emergency care, before appointment, or at-home care

Emergency Instructions – in-the-moment first aid

Report the Following Problems – what caller should tell their personal or ER physician

Seek Emergency Care Immediately – if certain symptoms occur

Reminder to determine if caller agrees with the advice provided and if not, reevaluate



Must-have resource for medical offices, clinics, schools, community referrals, emergency departments, urgent care centers, home health agencies and managed healthcare providers
