    The emergency room is where you go for emergent care, but always seems opposite. How can we minimise the crowded flow in the emergency room?

    @imrovement10 I have some follow up questions for you. What data do you have available to ask your frontline leaders questions? How long are patients held for observation in the ED before being admitted as inpatient to the facility? What are the processes which are bottlenecks to converting observation patients to inpatient?

    I hope these leading questions help to catalyze defining thoughts to engage with your team?
