INTRODUCTION Hospital emergency departments (EDs) in the United States serve a unique role in health care delivery. They are the only institutional providers mandated by federal law to evaluate anyone seeking care. They are expected at least to stabilize the most severely ill and injured patients, and they are primary care providers for vast numbers of people who lack access to a regular source of health care services. Data Elements for Emergency Department Systems (DEEDS) is a set of guidelines developed by The National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC) to promote uniform specifications for data entered in emergency department (ED) patient records.

DEEDS The recommendations in DEEDS, release 1.0 are intended for use by individuals and organizations responsible for maintaining record systems in 24 - hour, hospital-based EDs throughout the United States. If the data definitions, coding conventions, and other recommended specifications are widely adopted, then incompatibilities in ED records can be substantially reduced.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
