Notes

Abstract: This research investigates the socio-economic conditions and health service use behaviors of children using an emergency department for non-emergent medical care and contrasts those to a random sample of children in the Dallas, Texas area. The use of hospital emergency departments for non-emergent care among children was significantly associated with lower socio-economic status and lack of medical insurance. Low income, minority, and uninsured children are disproportionately more likely to rely on hospital emergency departments to supplement or supply the array of health care needs typically provided in a physician's office.
