Kids in tough neighborhoods head to ER more often
from HealthDay News via U.S. News & World Report
Growing up in a disadvantaged neighborhood may mean more visits to the emergency room, a new study suggests. When children came from areas of "low opportunity," they were about one-third more likely to have been treated at an urgent care center or an emergency room than kids from areas with more opportunity. They were also twice as likely to receive care for an assault-related injury compared to kids in the "highest opportunity" areas.
