This year the Emergency Medicine Day campaign is dedicated to safety. Safety for our patients, who need care, attention and relief from pain and disease. Safety for our colleagues, who need to be able to work in a secure environment, for the right number of hours with the right number of patients in order to be able to give them the right amount of our time and energy.
Only in these conditions are we sure to provide the patient with a safe haven in an emergency.
YOUR SAFETY – OUR PRIORITY
We strongly believe it is of the utmost importance that we can provide concrete data to the relevant stakeholders to reflect our distress and how this can threaten our safety and that of our patients.
We therefore would like to invite you to respond to the following 40 questions, based on a validated survey, about the safety of emergency care in your ED. We hope you can support the EM-Day with 10 minutes of your time.
In parallel to this survey we are sending a questionnaire to patients’ organisation and to individual patients, with the hope that the results of the three surveys will describe the situation in an unequivocal way.
The results of these surveys will be published on the EM day and will be circulated to media and politicians.
