Abstract

Guidelines were developed at the Whittington Hospital paediatric emergency department for a nurse-led discharge pathway, initially for children presenting to the department having accidentally ingested a substance that was potentially toxic. The pathway led to cuts in average time in hospital, time to treatment, and costs. Patients' experience of the emergency service was reported to be improved.
