Objective: To find out the risk events of pediatric outpatients by carrying out disaster vulnerability analysis, improve the emergency management and disposal capabilities of pediatric outpatients, and effectively avoid and deal with disaster risk events.

Methods: The Delphi method was used to screen for risk events, and the Kaiser model was used to design a personalized questionnaire to analyze the vulnerability of pediatric outpatient services.

Results: Through analysis, sorted out the top ten types of risk events, drug safety hazards (42.57%), patient identification error events (40.43%), patient falls / falls (39.93%), and violent medical disputes (38.84%), fire (38.37%), emergency life support system failure (38.08%), information system failure (35.14%), infectious disease epidemic (33.72%), medical gas failure (32.33%), air-conditioning failure (29.36%).

Conclusion: Disaster vulnerability analysis can more realistically reflect the key and difficult issues of emergency management of pediatric outpatients, provide objective evidence for pediatric outpatient emergency management planning, and improve the risk management of departments.
