Study: Patient's race doesn't affect emergency room care

HealthDay/Washington Post, November 20, 2008

The care of trauma patients in the United States is roughly the same no matter what the patient's race or ethnicity, according to researchers at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas. For the study, researchers analyzed data from almost 8,600 trauma patients included in a 2003 national survey. The patients were divided into three groups: white (6,106); black (1,406), and Hispanic (1,051).
