Health Care Concerns – Emergency Departments

– The hospital emergency departments are set up to deal with emergency health problems. Use of these facilities for non-emergent injuries creates a great deal of inefficiency and wasted resources.

– Patients who suffer acute injuries at night often use the local emergency department for evaluation because their family physician’s office is closed, again creating long waits and inefficient service.

– Acute muscle and joint injuries seen in the emergency department are often referred to the orthopedic cast clinic a few days following. This process delays the initiation of proper and comprehensive treatment as well as utilizing expensive┬áhospital resources.
