ABSTRACT
The article comments on issues concerning the crisis of admitted patients in Canadian emergency departments (ED). Major problems involves hospital overcrowding, with excessive and unsafe use of the ED to house admitted patients. In an attempt to address these problems, emergency physicians outline a recommendation using existing hospital resources, and by sharing the excess workload equally throughout the hospital rather than placing a disproportionate share of the burden in the ED.
