Description

Emergency room communication between doctor and patient allows the doctor to gather information for diagnosis and treatment and to transmit information to the patient. In this study, audio tapes of emergency room admissions were transcribed. The transcripts were analyzed using Systematic Analysis of Language Transcripts (SALT) and evaluated for linguistic complexity including length of utterances, morphology and frequency of interruptions. Statistics were compared between urban and rural settings to determine differences in linguistic complexity. Results may have relevance to models of social behavior in urban and rural areas, informed consent issues and development of the physician-patient relationship.
