This research article describes a conceptual model of emergency department patient safety that identifies clinical/environmental interventions and training/skills interventions that can make procedures done in the ED safer.  There is also a list of the most commonly performed ED procedures that identifies whether they are high-risk, medium-risk, or low-risk for patients, and the reasons why.
