  • Overview

    The emergency room has long been an entry point for medical care for the seriously injured, young parents with a sick child and increasingly poor uninsured Americans with nowhere to turn. But policymakers increasingly see the emergency room as less like those depicted on shows like Grey's Anatomy as a place for patients to abuse the system and run up costs. Dr. Andrew Sama, vice president of the American College of Emergency Physicians, tells host Bruce Japsen about how he thinks emergency doctors are beneficial to cost-effective medical care and why patients can and should turn to emergency departments.
