Pediatric emergency care presents unique safety challenges for a vulnerable patient population. This review summarizes emergency department (ED) improvement work across the six domains of quality. The authors suggest that pediatric EDs adopt high reliability concepts to enhance collaboration and data-sharing to improve safety. They also call for increased focus on equity and patient-centeredness.
