Emergency Cart to Open or Not to?Created by:
The definition can be taken from the word itself, emergency cart. But we have this situation in our hospital, dealing with marginalized patients in an emergency situation. Most of the time of course we do respond and give everything to them in such cases but ending up having our E-cart empty thereafter. Now the problem is that patients couldn't afford to replace what has been used during the code and our station ending up empty handed. And the worst thing, we pay for whatever is lacking at times.
If you we're in out situation, can you ever blame us not to give what is just and right to patients? On the other side, not to mention that sometimes we tend to think not open the cart because the sad thing is that, we tend to compromise. Which is unfair!
Can you share your experiences having this scenario? And how to respond with this?
