A recent study found that African-Americans are less likely to call 9-1-1 first when someone is having a stroke or heart attack. But a new study revealed that there are more factors to why we receive heart treatment late.

Hospital quality plays a factor in why Black patients wait longer for treatment that they need, according to a study released by Researchers from the University of Michigan Health System.

The authors stated that heart attack patients who arrive at hospitals that aren’t equipped to perform revascularization procedures, such as angioplasty or open-heart surgery, need to be transferred quickly to a hospital that can do these procedures. And Black heart patients were more likely to have to be the ones to be transferred because the first hospital they were brought to was not prepared for their needs. They also found that Black patients waited six hours longer than whites to get the life-saving treatment they required.
