Abstract

BACKGROUND: The main concept of risk management in the emergency department (ED) contains a broader meaning, so that; it's known as a sudden event or situation which would happen at an uncertain future that has some negative or positive impacts which could be called threat or opportunity respectively. However, the knowledge of risk management could cover the overall procedures involved with administering the planning of risk management, identification, investigation, monitoring and also step by step clinical examination. One of the main tools for preventing adversities is evaluating and management of possible risks.

AIM: One of the main objectives of the present study is recognising the most frequent types of the risk happening in the EDs. Moreover, the present study is trying to evaluate the possible risks which could happen among various ED sections.

METHODS: Six databases of EMBASE, HubMed, Cochrane Library, MEDLINE, PubMed, CHBD and Goggle scholar were chosen for discovering much-related articles from the year 2005 to 2019. A total number of 68 were chosen finally to be reviewed more precisely based on the main objective of the present study.

RESULTS: Precise planning, preparing sufficiently and conducting the process of continuous monitoring are needed for ensuring the fact that any possible risks could be managed through these planned strategies. On the other hand, by modifying the patients' beliefs, anticipations and the available social culture about the importance of risk management issue, the overall objective of the present study could be achieved at higher rates.

CONCLUSION: Moreover, because the potential of occurrence of risk in EDs is high and approximately more than half of them are fatal, more precise adequate systematic plans for management of them should result.
