When you are in labor do you go to labor & delivery or do you go to the ER?
I can not believe a hospital would require you to go into the ER, check in there & wait for triage to go from there.
EDIT: I'm not talking about having to go through the ER to get up to L&D, to sign in real quick fill out a form & then go up.
I was talking about a hospital that made you sit in the ER & wait to get triaged before going to L&D. This could take quite some time in most ER's, I just can't imagine this happening anywhere.
I get going through the ER bc the doors are closer, bc they are the only doors, bc registration is there so you fill out forms & then get sent up.
