Emergency Rooms.

A 4 hour wait for painkillers is unacceptable (especially when the individual is barely able to maintain conciousness because the pain is so great). An 8 hour wait for a simple diagnosis is ridiculous.

Ugh, that's despicable. What part of "Emergency" is unclear?

That's when you just start rifling (works best equipped with a rifle) through things for what you need.

To be fair, Emergency Rooms often serve a very different purpose for some individuals than we might normally except from the name "Emergency Room." That is, it is relatively common for individuals without insurance to use ER's like a general practicioner. ER's wont turn people away who don't have insurance and, if the individual can't pay, the hospital has to eat the cost. Thus, "ER doctors" (and by "ER doctors" I mean M.D.'s, P.A., and Nurse Practicioners) see a lot of people who do not have an emergency in any sense of the word. One of the best arguments for universal health care is that Emergency Rooms might then be exclusively for Emergencies again. Yet even at that, ERs seem to be constantly understaffed.

Considering that the ER in question was attached to one of the nations largest medical schools, however, does not speak well for the University or the national health system in general.

My dad fell unconscious for about a minute before the ambulance arrived and quoted his blood sugar at about 319 (80-110 is an average). They rushed him to the hospital where me and my mom soon followed pursuit.

Upon arrival the doctor informed us his blood sugar was fine so there was some mistake with the equipment the EMT used was faulty. We waited for HOURS (literally, hours, upon hours) for the results of an xray that should've taken 20 mins (according to them).

Eventually they said there was nothing wrong. We left at 4am right after we got off of work.

Oh see I was tired, forgot to mention my main irritant while I was there.

They were using really, really anal respiratory monitors, though we didn't know they were anal. So he was sleeping, and his heartbeat would be stable, then it'd dip lower, and lower. A yellow light comes on with a quiet but notable beep, no one comes. Then, it turns red, gets very loud, still, no one moves, so I walk out, grab someone, and drag them in. Wait no, first I requested someone, at the yellow light, no one came, and THEN I dragged someone in.

Two things:

1. Respirators sort of need to be connected to the lungs somehow, not the ass, to function at all.
2. Seriously, you didn't know? How do you not notice something like that?

When you've known some one for a long time then suddenly forget her name. There is really no recovery, especial when I've known her for three years.

Oh look, a troll. Nice job on trying to be to copy Kebrel, but you fail, hope you get banned.
