Health care workers are notorius for taking care of themselves last. We are too busy and too needed to be sick. We wait until we are REALLY sick to see the doctor. Often it is at the point of needing hospitalization. But when we do get sick we have the health care coverage to be able to afford the hospital stay, thus the greater utilization of hospitalization.
