Implementing Triage Standing Orders in the Emergency Department Leads to Reduced Physician-to-Disposition Times

Standing orders decrease disposition time for patients presenting with chest pain. Moreover, when all tests result prior to provider evaluation, disposition time decreases even further. ED LOS, however, increases with the implementation of standing orders, reflecting the use of standing orders during high census periods in the ED.
