In Hungary an open day was held to have a look behind the screens in the ED and to get CPR training, ask questions and get information how the ED works.
Also was explained that 2/3 of the patients coming in are actually not urgent. This is taking away a lot of resources from the real urgent cases. This is a serious problem for many ED's. Also was explained why patients sometimes have to wait for a while. This is not because they get lousy service, but because the most urgent cases have to go first.
