ER sarcasm

So please tell me when a cold became an emergency. ooooh noo I have a cold let's spend 4 hours in the waiting room. So the Dr can tell me it's a cold go home get some rest and take some tylenol for the aches and pains.

As for that when did nausea and vomiting become an emergency room visit too? I seriously have people that come in for vomiting 1 time only. C'mon people! I must say yes once I did visit an ER for nausea and vomiting. I also had food poisoning. I didn't know which end to put in first I was so sick. I was on my bathroom floor laying there for a good hour before I went in. I did need a few liters of saline before I even peed again. I was that dehydrated. But one time vomiting let's rush to the ER I don't think so!

I do enjoy my job though. I think it's cute what things I find in the nose of 2 and 3 years old. My own daughter managed to put a bead up her nose as well when she was small.

ok enough of my rant's about the ER.

I agree and I am not a nurse. I cannot stand the clinic feel of our ER.
