The study subjects were 100 emergency patients treated in a hospital between May 2020 and November 2021. They were randomly assigned to an observation group and a control group, each having 50 cases. The control group followed a standard management protocol, but the observation group included emergency care. Management, compare the management effectiveness of the two patient groups. The observation group's arrival and rescue times were much shorter than those in the control group. Patient satisfaction was much greater in the observation group than in the control group. Conclusion: General practitioners have a broader range of medical expertise and are better equipped to give complete medical care to their patients. Emergency management can enhance general practitioners' productivity, further reduce emergency response time, prioritize patient treatment time, and raise the success rate of rescue. Additionally, patient satisfaction.
