You think it’s busy now in the ER’s or Mental Health facilities? And we already feel the burden of being short staffed at most places. The DSM V will be hitting and new conditions will be diagnosed, and all those who have legitimate health issues who didn’t used to have insurance and couldn’t afford to go t the ER, will now be able to. I don’t know the exact numbers, but I would say it will be a close to a 12-20% increase in people who use the emergency system. From FFs to Medics to EMTs to Nurses and Doctors and everyone else in between, they are the ones who will be affected negatively by the changes. What do you think? My mind is thinking about the shortage of medical providers and the burn out it will cause.
