L'intérêt d'une lettre d'admission aux urgences

Abstract : Objective: investigate the impact of General Practitioners' referral letters on the management's efficiency at the emergency department of the Grenoble Hospital. Population and methods : this survey includes all admitted patients to the emergency department during one week. The patients filled in a questionnaire, to evaluate the quality of the letter. The two criteria for evaluation are the waiting time and the concordance of diagnosis between the GPs and the consultants of emergency. Results : the survey includes 435 patients, among whom 233 had a letter. More a patient is old or in a critical condition, more he comes with a letter. The referral letter doesn't affect the patients' waiting time in the department. Conclusion : the communication between GPs and consultants is the most important item, mainly for old patients. Letters are an objective, efficient and practical way for the GP to communicate the information from the medical files. They are the most common means of communication.
