Doctors, nurses, and staff who work in the emergency department of a hospital face many risks. The emergency room is open to anyone who comes in, including violent criminals, drug addicts, and any number of other individuals.

Because many patients have not yet been stabilized, and medical treatment occurs at a more rapid pace, accidents are more likely to happen in this fast-paced setting than some other medical treatment settings. This course is geared towards an employee in the emergency room.
