Could have been worse....if you were at the University of Chicago Medical Center while MICHELLE OBAMA was employed as the VP of the Urban Health Initiative, your patient would have more than likely been DUMPED to another hospital in order to free up space for the PAYING customers!!!

ACTUALLY, Rnurse: "A study by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation found that the insured accounted for 83 percent of emergency-room visits, reflecting their share of the population. After Massachusetts adopted universal insurance, emergency-room use remained higher than the national average, an Urban Institute study found. More than two-fifths of visits represented non-emergencies. Of those, a majority of adult respondents to a survey said it was “more convenient” to go to the emergency room or they couldn’t “get [a doctor's] appointment as soon as needed.” If universal coverage makes appointments harder to get, emergency-room use may increase."
