1 in 4 Americans lacks timely access to optimal care during time-sensitive medical emergencies

A recent study that appears in the Annals of Emergency Medicine reports on the access to emergency services for some Americans.

In the U.S. in general 71% of Americans live within 30 minutes of an emergency room. However, some areas are not so lucky. From Eureka Alert:

In South Dakota, for instance, just 13 percent of the population has access within 60 minutes to an emergency department that sees three or more patients per hour; in Montana, only 8 percent do. Even in the more populous, urban Northeast, only about half of residents in Maine and Vermont can reach one of those higher-volume emergency departments within an hour. Overall, the authors found that less than half of Americans have access to a teaching hospital, which tend to offer more sophisticated treatments and be staffed by subspecialists round-the-clock, in an hour.

(h/t to Wisconsin Office of Rural Health)

EXTRA: On Friday, March 20th from 3-4pm Dr. Daryl Thornton will be presenting the next lecture in our Works in Progress series. The topic is, "Interpreters as Advocates". This is a very unique project taking place at MetroHealth Medical Center.

Location is room R240 of the Rammelkamp building at MetroHealth Medical Center.

Please RSVP to Michele Abraham at mabraham@metrohealth.org or by phone at 216-778-3858.
