ABSTRACT
The article offers the insights of Emergency Medicine Associates (EMA) safety innovation director Drew Fuller on the standard or process for handoffs in the emergency department (ED). He says that EDs are the highest-risk areas of the health care system, suggesting sign out can be a process fraught with vulnerability and risk. He mentions the basis for the Safer Sign Out template by the American College of Emergency Improvement and Safety (QIPS) which recommend improvement of handoffs.
