Primary Components of an Emergency Care System

1) Prehospital care (Ambulances, Paramedics, Drivers, Call Center)

2) Emergency Room (Doctors, Nurses, Supporting staff, facility)

3) Hospital Facilities (Radiology, CT, Labs, OTs, Cath, ICUs, and specialty teams)

All three are important. A patient moving through the ER must receive high quality care at every point. This is possible only with proper training.
