    Primary care providers in my area send patients to the ER all the time for a dose of mag or potassium. The ER sends them to med-surg and we administer the mag or whatever and then send them home. They are usually on the floor for a couple of hours. It seems awfully expensive for something that could be addressed in the office. We've had the same patient come in 2 weeks in a row for a mag infusion. I don't mind either way, they are usually the easiest patients to care for...but from a cost point of view, I would think the office would be cheaper.
