National report card on America's emergency care environment confirms crisis
We need your help to bring the 2014 National Report Card on America's Emergency Care Environment to the attention of federal legislators. The Nation's grade dropped to a D+ since the last report in 2009 (C-) because of the failure of our nation's policies to support emergency patients. The Report Card details the competing pressures of reduced resources and increased demand and forecasts an expanding role for emergency departments under Obamacare (the Affordable Care Act).
Congress needs to hear real solutions to address the crisis from ACEP members who are on the front-lines of the emergency care system and provide the safety net for all patients.
Please send a message to your legislators today
ask them to make it a national priority to strengthen our emergency medical system and protect emergency patients.
