Housecall for Health: Cutting Unnecessary ER Visits
Those long wait times in the emergency room could be reduced if people only went to the ER when they actually needed to. A new study is out with just how many people spend time waiting when they don’t need to.
FOX’s Colleen Cappon has tips on when you should go to the ER in today’s “Housecall for Health”:
Nearly 20% of trips to the emergency room are unnecessary. Next time you’re questioning, remember the acronym “A.B.C.D.E.”
-Airway, or choking.
-Rapid or slow Breathing.
-Bad Circulation, resulting in loss of Consciousness.
-Dehydration or Disability, including being able to walk, talk or keep down liquids.
-And Exposure to Environmental hazards, like heat or poison.
All these conditions are a sign to get help fast.
