KGH Emergency Room
By Steve Smeltzer
September 15, 2010
Odd that the lady with her child had to wait four hours to see
the emergency doctor.
Some 15 years ago I had rammed my head on a customer's low overhead
beam. I had to wait four hours with a bruise, while three screaming
babies were seen before me. That told me there was not enough
emergency room personnel. At least the babies were seen by emergency
room folks in a reasonable time. Me, I missed four hours of
work. But then that was in the morning.
The other time I had to go
to the emergency room, was after 9PM, and was able to get taken
care of in less than an hour.
