Ris­ing ad­mis­sions could be good sign

Modern Healthcare - - OPINIONS | EDITORIALS -

Just read the ar­ti­cle “Study finds jump in ER-re­lated ad­mis­sions” (ModernHealth­care.com, May 20). Ac­tu­ally, this could be a good sign, that the ER is be­ing used more ap­pro­pri­ately for things that need ad­mis­sion. This might mean more peo­ple are be­ing seen in ur­gent care, by nurse prac­ti­tion­ers in com­mu­nity out­posts, and doc­tor vis­its within the sys­tem.

Lt.Col. (Ret.) Kate Jan­sky, cer­ti­fied reg­is­tered nurse anes­thetist, Sam­mamish, Wash.
