aired; November 13th, 2023.
Emergency rooms in Pennsylvania hospitals are overcrowded according to the Pennsylvania Medical Society – a statewide organization representing doctors.
That’s even though there are more urgent care facilities, and more people have health insurance than a decade ago.
The Pennsylvania Medical Society says there are several causes for the overcrowding and is calling on Gov. Shapiro to step in to address the issue.
Joining us on The Spark Monday to talk about ER overcrowding was Dr. Kristen Sandel, President-elect of the Pennsylvania Medical Society.
