ED Physicians Sound Alarm on Overcrowding
Health Leaders Media

Emergency physicians have sounded another warning cry about overcrowding following results from a March survey showing that 80% of their departments have seen increases in visits in the last year.

The results refute the prevailing but incorrect assumption that when more people have insurance, emergency room visits will go down when in fact, they will more than likely go up, says Sandra Schneider, MD, president of the American College of Emergency Physicians.
