Emergency Room Etiquette

Emergency Room Etiquette

I have found myself in the local Emergency Room several times during the pandemic. Let me just warn you … the Emergency Room is a different place these days. You can mark off at least three hours … if you aren’t very sick. Also, ER visits aren’t quite as exciting as they seem to be on television or as dramatic. Although my friend definitely needed to go to the ER, after about the third hour of sitting behind the closed curtain, I wondered why I was there. Did he need me? He was asleep most of the time. Did he need for me to answer medical questions? Was I needed to give blood donations or help with the paperwork? Not really. But when someone needs to go to the ER, it’s best not to go alone.
