ACEP Grades States' Emergency Medicine System

From the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP), a new website: The National Report Card on the State of Emergency Medicine. Here's a selection from the report on Iowa:

Iowa Compared with the Nation: Iowa earned a C+ overall for its support of an emergency care system to meet the needs of its residents. Although it achieved excellent ratings for Quality and Patient Safety and above-average ratings in Access to Emergency Care, it received a mediocre score in the Public Health and Injury Prevention category and a near-failing grade for its Medical Liability Environment.
