The Clinical Decision Unit (CDU) is an innovative addition to the Emergency Department. It is designed for emergency patients who require ongoing observation, including outpatient testing and treatment for patients who are waiting on clinical answers with limited subjection to inpatient admission status. In this ambulatory setting, care is provided for pediatric, adult and geriatric patients who require short-term treatment and diagnostic testing that which can be accomplished within the observation time frame (23 hours or less). Patients whose medical status has decompensated or have a written inpatient status/order should not be placed in the CDU. The Clinical Decision Unit has a capacity of 22 beds.
