Unfortunately, when your ER is constantly on the verge of closing, it's hard to scrape up extra funds to reduce error.

While money never hurts, alot of error reduction can be accomplished without it. Standardizing practices to sign the limb you're going to operate on, checklists to remember to remove unneccessary intravenous and bladder catheters and alot more low-hanging fruit remains unpicked.

Oh, I forgot the biggest freebie of them all: handwashing. A large chunk of those postoperative infections are due to dirty hands while studies continue to show that it's a coin flip as to whether your provider has washed his or her hands.
