Racial disparities in emergency department length of stay point to added risks for minority patients
Date:3/5/2009

medical advancements of the last decade can be totally erased by spending a couple hours longer than necessary in the ED. It continues to perplex me as to why hospitals allow this to happen," says the study's senior author, Judd Hollander, MD, professor and director of clinical research in the department of Emergency Medicine. "Even prior to the economic downturn, some institutions had actually begun prioritizing hospital beds for insured patients having lucrative elective procedures. These measures will only worsen disparities for minorities. Congress needs to make certain that 'not for profit' hospitals do not compromise patient care in pursuit of greater profits."
