Government Accountability Integrity Reliability Office Collection

Excerpt
Excerpt: While many emergency departments across the country reported some degree of crowding, the problem is more pronounced in certain hospitals and communities. For example, while 2 of every 3 hospitals reported asking ambulances to be diverted to other hospitals at some point in fiscal year 2001, a smaller portion-about 1 of every 10-reported being on diversion status for more than 20 percent of the year. Hospitals in areas with larger populations, areas with high population growth in recent years, and areas with higher-than-average percentages of people without health insurance reported higher levels of crowding.
