Avoiding emergency rooms

August 24th, 2021

More than 15 million people visit a hospital emergency department in Canada every year. But did they need to go in the first place? Victoria-based emergency physician, Dr. Fred Voon has written Your Inside Guide to the Emergency Department: And How to Prevent Having to Go! (FriesenPress $36.95 h.c.), busting some common myths and providing practical tips to stay out of the ED. Guiding readers through what really happens in EDs, he answers questions like why you have to wait so long and why did other people get seen before you? More importantly, who gets seen faster and how can you get treated sooner? And, who are all these ED people anyway? 978-1777603410
