Indicators are established to study, computer records at all hours of the entry of the patient, triage time nurse hours, doctor time hours of treatment, tests and time high. Delays are accounted for by variables such as triage time, time gate ECG (electrocardiogram) in ACS (acute coronary syndrome) and gate needle in acute myocardial infarction (AMI)Internal audit is performed and appreciated of the correct identification and asepsis of intravenous catheters. Results: In 80.3% of cases triage nursing is made in less than 10 minutes below the quality standard of 85%. Fibrinolysis is performed in AMI in less than 10 minutes by 32%. SCA ECG is performed in less than 10 minutes to 26% of SCA visiting the emergency room, when the quality standard is 95% 97.56% of emergency were correctly identified and 90.9% of intravenous catheters maintain proper aseptic.
