New findings when it comes to the preparedness of America's emergency rooms.
Researchers estimate it'll take another ten years before emergency rooms are completely staffed with fully-trained, board-certified doctors. That's only if none of the current doctors leave their jobs or die.
The Institute of Medicine says all E-R doctors should have a specialty in emergency medicine. Researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital say only about fifty five percent of doctors currently meet this standard.
