Yea, I have to go to the doctor on a regular basis for a condition, but I was there from 6 this morning to 12 today...:grump: Half of a day wasted. When the man finally gets in the room he seems like he has a cold too, I had to be in the room with him for 10 minutes to. Hopefully I won't get sick! :x
Also, I have to wait for test results....always a pain the ass.
baww.
Oh, message to watchers, just finished the feature journal.

gahh, I hate doctors....

I know that feeling :saddummy: Between rheumatologists, my OBGYN, my GI doctor and my primary care it seems like I'm going to the doctor all the time.

I remember staying seven hours at the most. Maybe my surgery took longer then I thought however. I was asleep the entire time.

6 hours =/= half a day, it equals a quarter of a day. Though it is understandable you're sick and can't be expected to do math properly. Not to mention you wasted a quarter of a day :(

Most people colloquially refer to daytime as simply 'day'.

Ie, 'day and night'.

Yeah, they do.

My grandfather says that if you sleep past 9am, 'You're wasting the day!' He doesn't mean a 24 hour period. He means daytime.

Well some people don't

To continue this is ridiculous especially considering, that if she was there at 6 am, in the USA it wouldn't be sun rise yet =P, also depending where you are "day" can be anywhere from 2 hours to 16

I went to the doctor not long ago for an allergic reaction. He reached over to touch me, and I almost slapped him. Not because it was unreasonable to check my health, but because his thumb had a huge fucking hole in it. The nail was all black except for the hole near his cuticle, where it was all red and freakishly disturbing. And I have a problem with nail injuries in general, few things disgust and horrify me as much. :stare:

You'd think a doctor would put a bandaid on that fucking thing. Especially before touching people. D:

Yeah, well we hate you too. Stop coming into the ER with your problems and just leave your money.

I'm speaking figuratively in the future, as I'm not there *yet*.

In all reality, medicine takes time. If you have a problem, expect it to take time. I'm a bit fed up with people always complaining to me in the ER that they've been there for soooo long (average of whiners is at about the 2 hour mark). They expect us to magically attended to multiple people instantly. SO CALM YOURSELF, YOU'LL GET WHAT YOU NEED EVENTUALLY. Well, that is if the doctor isn't busy. ;P

I sat in the ER with my husband for 12 straight hours. I didn't complain, but I still feel that it was soooo long. Especially since he had appendicitis.

Although, I think average wait times in this city run near the 6 hour mark. We don't have enough hospitals. I feel bad for the ER doctors trying to find room for everyone.

The longest I've ever seen is 7:42, and that was a very special case. Our average is around 3, 12 hours is just insane. Understaffed is an understatement.

Quick question(s): what do people usually go to the ER for that require them to wait so long? And second, do people wait longer because their needs aren't as urgent as someone elses? As in someone breaking their arm getting push down for someone needing their stomach pumped over alcohol poisoning?


Also, I suppose people get pissy on the basis it's called an EMERGENCY room. The people in there are in for a reason and need to be seen urgently as possible, right?

It depends. People hang around in the ER for a few hours when Xrays, CT scans, or other pictures that violate every cell in the body. And yes, if we hear the words "Triage Stat" we basically ignore everyone. The person in the most need takes priority.

And no. People come in all the time for dumb things. Like checking for STDs! I mean, the majority of our patients are hurting, but to call it an emergency... Not so much.

I had no idea people come in for stupid shit. In my mind, A&E is full of people with properly bad conditions to the point where they need immediate attention.

I know you're not really allowed to say it, but I bet you're all thinking 'god damn, take an aspirin and see the GP while I sort out this guy that just got rescued from that burning building'.

Oh I do tell them.

I've seen it all. But in the end, my "I want to punch you so hard in the face" comment is reduced too: "Sir/ma'am, this is an emergency room. I have other patients I need to treat as well. Some of them are bleeding. Really really badly. I'll get to you when I can."

But hey. You really can't get mad at them, when people are in pain, their world shrinks to them.

Eurgh yes. I volunteer at Children's Hopsital and I had actually been helping in the ER waiting room at some point, and saw kids whom had broken an arm and such there who got their arm stuck in a brace to wait until there was time to get to them when they could. ((Which was still pretty fast P:))

People whom are impatient in the ER can be annoying. Life still works that those in most danger get treated first. P:
