ER DOCS..LAWSUITS..AND EXCESSIVE TESTING

a well written article from AP..i do not envy the job that ER docs have to do..i used to work in urgent care seeing 6+ patients per hour..stressful..yeah… but no big deal..i still think that too many ER physicians are overly dogmatic in their approach to medicine and practice too much “cookbook” medicine..not all but it seems to be a “cultural” bias..and the BILL is enormous!!!! http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/U/US_MED_OVERTREATED_ER?SITE=MOSTP&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT
