Minorities more likely to die in ER

HealthDay/Washington Post, October 21, 2008
Blacks and Hispanics are more likely to die in U.S. emergency rooms after a trauma than white patients are, according to new research. In addition, uninsured ER patients are more likely to die compared with insured patients, according to the study. Compared with an insured white patient, equivalently injured black patients have 20% higher risk of dying, while Hispanic patients have a 51% increased odds of dying, Haider said.
