Advice

Perform a crowding score assessment every shift, as well as at times of large influxes of patients to the ED.

Management

Many hospitals have developed “surge plans” similar to disaster plans that provide additional resources to the hospital and ED when an ED goes above a certain score threshold (often level 4 or 5 - >100 or >140).
