Ten years ago at OSF-SFMC in Peoria I thought my Emergency Room (ER) patients were at risk. I thought the system was stacked with elective admissions who were trumping my sick patients waiting in the ER.
See this article from Emergency Medicine News.
I thought that medicine had become more about business than taking care of patients.
This article, written by an academic surgeon in California, states the same. He lost his mother to the "system".
