An emergency department nurse helps staff prioritise care based on the critical nature and severity of a patient's condition. A nurse's medical knowledge, quick thinking, and attention to detail lend a hand towards comprehensively assessing a patient's needs, obtaining their medical history and personal information, and seeking a doctor's evaluation immediately for life-threatening issues.
