Why do people use the emergency room as a quick care?

I know a girl whom takes her daughter to the ER for everything. It makes me wonder. I thought the emergency room was for life or death. What are your thoughts on this?

It's the bain of insurance companies. It's become a huge expense dealing with people like that, and it's becoming far too regular.

My kids have been to the ER maybe 3-4 times in their lives. It was always an emergency that their doctor or urgent care could not handle.

It's one of the only options for people without medical insurance.

I have no clue...my kids are 25 and 27 and Ive never taken them to the ER in my life.

Luckily Ive never had to for an "emergency"...and we've always had insurance for doc visits.
