Many of these cases arise due to misinformation regarding medical applications and unnecessary confusion or panic. These problems can be effectively filtered out by trained front level medical practitioners i.e., nursing staff and practice doctors. This filtering can be efficiently implemented to decrease workload and increase the effectiveness and productivity of experienced medical practitioners, who are scarce in many regions. This also improves patient care and paves the way for providing increased attention toward more serious cases that are highly time-bound (i.e. emergency cases).
  •  Since nurses are often well informed about the appropriate expert medical practitioner specializing in a particular case. According to the WHO, stroke accounted for 6 million deaths, and more than 2 million people died of injuries and accidents globally every year.
