More Evidence Minorities in U.S. Get Poorer Hospital Care
Date:10/6/2011

interesting study," added Salim, who is also a trauma surgeon. "And the findings conform closely to what we see out there in practice. I can say for sure that we see it in trauma care, among those safety-net hospitals that care for a higher proportion of minorities. These facilities tend to have worse outcomes regardless of their insurance status or their race."

A Johns Hopkins School of Medicine report published in the Archives of Surgery last month highlights Salim's point, concluding that patients of all races face worse outcomes and a greater risk for death when treated at trauma centers that serve a higher proportion of minority patients.
