ERs are the only unit in a hospital that has no limit for the amount of patients admitted.
That’s right. We basically take patients until the whole system breaks down. First we put a stretcher in every nook and cranny of open space. Then we double up every room. Then we take overflow from units that are “full.”
Speaking from experience here folks. It ain’t pretty.
Welcome to American health care. I know you’re not happy, but I’m doing my best.
