The emergency room is a place for real emergencies and for every patient that makes a trip to the E.R when they don’t have an emergency, there is another patient waiting to be seen for a REAL emergency.
Here are some ailments and reasons that don’t warrant a trip to the emergency room:
Your tooth hurts
You have been arrested and just want to delay the inevitable (going to jail)
The old “I haven’t slept in weeks” story
You want a refill on your medication, but you’re too lazy to pay your doctor a visit
Your toe has been hurting since 1972
You feel “hot” so you know you have a fever, it’s just not showing up on the thermometer
You really just “want” something for pain
You thought it might be fun to ride in an ambulance
You think you have Ebola cause you sneezed
You haven’t pooped in 3 whole days
You had diarrhea once today and you “felt” like you were nauseas
Your Mom told you to come
