A study has determined that workflow interruptions are most likely to occur during two key events electronic medical record documentation and direct patient care. Findings suggest that changes in the workflow in emergency departments could increase the care team's efficiency and help improve patient care. Interruptions in workflow, such as a phone call while working on another task, or when a colleague stops by for a chat, can lead to inefficiencies in the workplace. For nurses working in emergency departments, those interruptions could affect patient care.
