MedStar Launches 9-1-1 Nurse Triage Program

Under this program, very low-acuity or no acuity 9-1-1 medical calls will be transferred to a specially trained RN in MedStar’s communication center. The RN will further evaluate the medical needs of the patient to assure no probability of a medical emergency exists, then work with the patient to find them the best resource to address their medical condition.
