Triage

Triage is a process where patients are sorted into emergent, urgent, and non-urgent cases. Emergent cases are dealt with first and so on. Triaging is usually seen in the triage area of a hospital (usually the lobby or the emergency room) and in areas where an accident has occurred. This is done to effectively use the manpower, facility, and supplies according to patients who need it the most. On the site of an accident, this is done to send the emergent cases to the hospital first.

Triaging is a very important concept to teach first aid rescuers. Learn more about triage in a first aid training program.
