Just What is a Triage Nurse Anyway?Author: Kurt Duncan
Triage nurses are nurses that provide advice to patients over the phone, without the benefit of a face to face consultation. They are not meant to diagnose a patient, but rather to assess the situation and give advice as needed. They can tell a patient whether they should immediately seek medical treatment, or whether the condition can wait until regular business hours. Many triage nurses are also able to book appointments for physician that they are associated with.
