Abstract

A depressive state is a key risk factor for medical errors by emergency life‐saving technicians ( ELST s). We investigated the association between a depressive state and near‐misses using a cross‐sectional study in 345 ELST s. A depressive state was significantly associated with the occurrence of near‐misses among ELST s and was related to nap duration and excessive office work, indicating that improved management of the work environment and operations of ELST s could lead to safer emergency medical services.
