Homeless people more frequent users of ED, other health services
Single women who are homeless visit a hospital emergency department an average of more than twice a year, 13 times more often than women in the general population, new research has found. Single men who are homeless make an average of two visits a year to emergency, nine times more than men in the general population. Homeless men, women and families also have significantly more doctors' appointments and higher hospitalization rates, according to research led by Dr. Stephen Hwang of the Centre for Research on Inner City Health at St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto.
