Our objectives was to evaluate whether referral to primary care settings would be clinically appopriate for and acceptable to patients waiting for emergency department care for nonemergency conditions.
We studied 700 patients waiting for emergency department care at a public hospital.
Access to alternative sources of medical care, clinical appropriateness of emergency department use, and patients' willingness to use nonemergency services were measured and compared between patients with and without a regular source of care.
