Emergency department mortality rates plummet over 15 years
from Modern Healthcare
Emergency departments across the country saw a nearly 50 percent drop in adult deaths over a 15-year period, according to a new study published in Health Affairs. Although the study couldn't pinpoint an exact cause for the changes in ED mortality rates from 1997 to 2011, the authors noted that changes in pre-hospital, emergency and palliative care could all be factors.
