Society of academic emergency medicine. Annual Meeting. Washington DC (USA), 1991/05.
To determine whether emergency department complaint frequency varies with patient median household income, as approximated by patient residence zip code.
All patients visits and complaints received in one ED were reviewed.
Median household income of patient residence zip codes was obtained from available demographic data.
Patients were categorized into seven income categories.
Cases in which zip codes could not be determined or zip code income data could not be obtained;
complaints from physicians, not patients;
and data from zip codes remote from the hospital.
