Analysis of frequent users of the ER
Analysis of frequent users of the ER (May 19, 2015 - Insidermedicine)
From Alberta - People who frequently visit emergency care are at raised risk of death, according to a report published in the Emergency Medicine Journal. Researchers conducted a meta-analysis of 31 studies from 1990-2013. Results showed that frequent emergency department users accounted for one in 12 patients seeking emergency care, and around 1 in 4 visits. Researchers also found that frequent users were 2.5x more likely to be admitted to hospital when compared to infrequent users, and over 2x more likely to die than those who rarely visited the emergency department.
