Oregon hospital records show that one in six visits to emergency rooms by children could be avoided; and that costs $27-million a year.  Dr. David Shute with the Oregon Health Care Quality Corporation says the conditions include ear infections and colds, and those should be handled by “Urgent Care.”  These kids are covered by insurance.  Some of the reasons they end up in emergency rooms could be that their illness happens in the middle of the night, or a parent's work schedule prevents a doctor's visit during the day.
