On today’s episode, our topic of discussion is the assessment of patient safety in an emergency setting. This is a topic that I think is a good review at any stage in our training, as safety of our patient’s while in a crisis should be our foremost concern. This will be a good review for residents who are currently taking call in an emergency department setting, as well as psychiatrists working in these positions.
