The use of a Rapid Treatment Area increases an emergency department’s capacity, expediting patient care.  At times when all ED beds are occupied, the Rapid Treatment Area (RTA) can be used to initiate assessment and treatment of patients waiting to be seen.

  1. Patient enters triage when no ED beds are available
  2. Labs and x-ray begin in Rapid Treatment Area
  3. Patient is moved to ED bed when available
