This is Scientific American's 60-Second Science, I am Karen Hopkin. This'll just take a minute.

 

A trip to the emergency room is usually traumatic. It has to be. Why else would you be going? But new research shows that it also tends to be confusing1. Scientists from the University of Michigan conducted detailed2 interviews with about 150 patients as they were released3 from the ER. And they compared the patients’ impressions of what had happened with their hospital records. What they found is that three quarters of the patients they spoke4 with didn’t understand what was wrong with them, what was done for them, or what they should do when they get home. What’s worse, these same patients reported being pretty sure of what they understood, or thought they understood, 80 percent of the time. The results appear online in the Annals of Emergency Medicine.

The biggest area of confusion5 revolved6 around what to do next: what medicines patients might need to take, whether they should make an appointment to see their regular doc, or what symptoms7 would indicate they need to get themselves back to the ER. Obviously8, doctors need to do a better job of explaining things. But patients, too, should question the staff until they get clear instructions. Take along a family member for an extra set of ears. Even ask the doctor to write things down. Of course, good luck trying to read it later.

 

Thanks for the minute for Scientific American's 60-Second Science, I'm Karen Hopkin.
