Beryl Case Study: Improved First Impressions at Your Front Door - Patient Ambassador Rounders Enhance the Patient Experience of a Busy Emergency Department

Key Takeaways

The introduction of an engaged and highly trained Patient Ambassador Rounding Program in the ED 24-hours a day for five days a week produced remarkable improvements in nine survey areas of patient experience in the ED of a large academic medical center.

Ultimate Outcome
