Screening Physicians

The ED healthcare team is comprised of eighteen general practitioners and residents who are in charge of decision making and sorting patients into different categories of disease acuity and prioritization using Emergency Severity Index (ESI) i.e. a five-level-triage algorithm levels. If the patient meets high acuity level criteria (level 1,2 & 3), s/he will be referred to ED, otherwise will be visited by screening physicians..
