    No. People who are bored, especially the elderly do go because it gives them something to do. My grandmother used to look forward to them and would make needless appointments constantly.

    I think I've visited every damn ER in this county. My experience is wait time in an ER is very short if you have a real life threatening emergency. The time between the EMS person transferring you to the ER doctor is often only a minute or so.

    However, if you use the ER the way many people do, that is your tummy is upset and you have a headache and you don't want to wait two days to see your doctor, then you should plan on a good 8 to 10 hours in the ER. An ER does not work on a first come first serve basis. They triage. You get a quick evaluation when you check in to determinate if it appears you have a life threaten emergency. If not they assign an ER room when one's available. After connecting you up to monitoring, a doctor checks you again to see if your condition appears life threatening. If not, he orders appropriate diagnostic tests and blood draws. Chances are you want see the the doctor until all tests are in. I've been through this with my wife, my kids, my grand kids, and myself many times.

    Just because you wait in an ER a long time is not a sign they are short on personnel. If an ER provides immediate medical services for everyone that walks in the door, their staff would be twice as large as would their bill.

    So you think people will go to the doctor or ER and spend hours sitting there so they can be poked with needles and be told a lot of stuff they don't want to hear just because there's little or no cost.:cuckoo:
