NEW YORK — Burrows’ internal medicine hospital has 1,000 “emergency room” patients for non-urgence, non life-threatening and nonemerient reasons.
The patients are being treated for chest pain and other ailments.
The hospital says they receive the care because of the “urgent nature of the patient and the potential for non life threatening complications.”
The hospital, a private hospital that opened in July, had about 1,600 patients, most of them emergency room patients.
It said it had seen a “shift in our patients from non-emergency to non-serious” after a recent review of patient outcomes.
The report comes after a report that a physician at Burrows was involved in a 2010 incident in which a patient died after a chest-pressure monitor failed to work.
On Monday, Burrows spokeswoman Jennifer Pecoraro told The Associated Press that the hospital is continuing to monitor the incident and that “we are continuing to seek answers about how that happened.”
Burrowing has a total of 4,600 beds in New York, according to a July report by the Hospital Association. “
We are working closely with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the FDA to make sure that we have the resources and resources to continue to serve our patients as they come through our doors.”
