Condition
  • Emergencies
  • Triage
Intervention Other: Four-level Chinese Emergency triage scale
a four-level category system, i.e. life-threatening (Level I), emergent (Level II), urgent (Level III) and semi-urgent (Level IV) . This system contains critical indicators (cardiac arrest, shock, and apnea), high risk indicators (ACS and DKA), single objective indicators (SBP, RR, HR, and SpO2) and MEWS (synthesis indicator). According to patients' health care problems, patients are rated by nurses into one of the four mentioned levels.
