I'm sitting in the ER waiting to be seen and a man just came in talking about a toothache. Said he was here 2 days ago but he cant afford the prescription and wanted another shot. It looks like he has NO teeth. What are some outrageous things you have seen in the ER?

If he can't afford the prescription, what does he think they'll do?

I was waiting to be seen and this young man comes in. Hand allwrapped up in bloody towels. Tells the triage nurse "I cut my hand". She tells him to take a seat.
Another guy comes in behind him with a blood soaked bundle of towels and ice packs. Says "I'm with him. I have his hand."

He didn't cut his hand. He cut his hand OFF.

He was taken in right away.

The worst I can think of is waiting 6hrs because I couldn't breathe - they finally put me in a room and the doc comes in and tells me I have gas. They give me an enema and send me home.
I went back two days later, cussed everyone out and demanded they look harder because I did NOT have gas ...
Turns out, I had a pulmonary embolism.

Why are you at the ER?

Nothing really odd, but if I go in usually its for respiratory distress of a major kind (I have bad asthma) and I always get people that give me dirty looks when I get brought right in. I always wonder why people think it's like the deli. I am sorry my inability to breath comes before a sprained foot, or stomach bug.

I waited 4 hours in the waiting room with a broken foot, bone almost through the skin. got taken back to xray, then back to the waiting room for ANOTHER 4 hours. I asked when I would be seen and they were like "oh we thought you left"
