America's Emergency Care Environment issued its latest report card, slapping national emergency care with a D+. Kentucky earned a D.

ACEP said the current policies on state and national levels are putting emergency patients at risk as resources continue to shrink and demands climb higher.

The Report Card ranked the District of Columbia first in emergency care with a B-. The top states were:

1) Massachusetts (B-)

2) Maine (B-)

3) Nebraska (B-)

4) Colorado (C+)

The bottom states:

46) Kentucky (D)

47) Montana (D)

48) New Mexico (D)

49) Arizona (D-)

50) Wyoming (F)

The Report Card measures conditions and policies for how emergency care is delivered, not the actual quality of care given by hospitals and emergency providers.
