Can someone please tell the 160 patients in triage that they need to be triaged and sometimes there are other people that are more sick than yourself. I’m a trained ER/triage nurse and I know when you need to come back to a room faster than the moment you realized you needed to come to the ER! Your colds, congestion, low grade temp, foot pain x 3 years is going to have to wait behind the stroke symptoms, overdose, septic newborn and low 02 stat elderly person! The general public needs to understand what an ER is used for and what and an urgent care is used for! To many level 3-5’s taking over in most of America’s ER’s! If your waiting it’s probably because you don’t need to be there!!
