The American College of Emergency Physicians has issued its national report card on the nation’s emergency medical care system.  The report card evaluates emergency medical care on a state-by-state basis in several categories.  Pennsylvania scored well in some categories; not so well in others.  For access to emergency care, Pennsylvania received a B+.  For quality and patient safety environment, Pennsylvania received an A.  For medical liability environment, Pennsylvania received an F.  For public health and injury prevention, Pennsylvania received a C-.  And, for disaster preparedness, Pennsylvania received a C+.  Pennsylvania was awarded an overall grade of C+, which was good enough to rank them sixth best in the country.  For the nation as a whole, the ACEP gave the emergency medical care system a D+ which is poorer than the prior report card issued in 2009.
