Anyone who works in the Emergency Medicine is likely to be used to an ED ‘board’ or screen displaying all the patients in the department. This contains information such as name, age, triage category etc. It often has a summary of what the patients, or parents/carers in case of a children’s ED, said they came with…

or more correctly what the admissions clerk wrote down what they came is with…

or, as we find out in this podcast between Dr. Gareth Lewis and I, maybe something else entirely. 

We discuss what to look out for in the small amount of information you get on the ED board and give some examples of our favourite ‘presenting complaint’ errors!
