Do you ever take your child to the ER for nonemergency reasons
such as an ear ache, stomach ache or things like that? I am just asking because I have noticed that there are several people that I know in real life that do and I have to be honest, it really bugs me. If their kid was running a high temp and super sick, I could understand it, but once they took their kid because they had a cold, nothing more. Tonight their child has an ear ache and they took her for no other reason than that. The reason that it bugs me is because I feel that these people use the ER for their personal doctor office when their are true emergencies out there that the staff are needed for. If you go to the ER here before 11:00 there is something called fast track, kind of like a quick care clinic, but these people always wait until it is too late to go. I just don't see the point in using the ER for such nonemergent reasons.If you do this, can you explain to me why so I might be able to understand because I truly don't get it.
Sorry, I just had to get that out.
