Abstract

During a stay in the emergency department the treatment that cardiac patients receive can have a significant effect on health outcomes; yet, little is known about the process of care in emergency departments. In this study we examined the effect of nurse resources on the process of care in all New Jersey hospital-based emergency departments. Patient-to-nurse ratio, nurse skill mix, and Magnet accreditation were associated with aspirin on arrival and percutaneous coronary intervention within 90. minutes of arrival.
