Outpatient Care Underused In Treatment of Teens with Pelvic Inflammatory Disease

Release Date: January 4, 2011

Hospitalizing teen girls with pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) costs six times as much as treating them in the emergency room, and up to 12 times more than treating them in an outpatient clinic, according to a small study conducted at the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center.
