CDC: One-fifth of Americans visit ER once a year
from United Press International
While emergency rooms are known for being busy, new national research shows the level of patients in the five most populous states does not vary widely — though they make up more than one-third of all emergency room visits in the United States. A new report by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows emergency rooms are busy, with one in five Americans taking at least one trip per year to the hospital for urgent care, with most being adults and most not admitted for care.
