Table 1 The DUNDRUM-1 triage security scale was rated by admitting clinicians and has been divided by the number of items to normalise for the score 0–4, where greater than 3 indicates high security at the point of admission, 2 or more medium security, 1 or more low security and under 1 indicates minimal security needs
