inthefrey Posted August 18, 2021 Share Posted August 18, 2021 So, I'm standing perimeter guard at the emergency room while my wife sits with my daughter who is waiting to be seen. There are 45 people in this waiting room and six ambulances outside. No joke! When we got here, there were six cop cars, three of them state troopers. One state trooper was in a wheelchair with an puke pan in his lap, two people lying on benches covered up, three people in wheelchairs, half a dozen kids, one guy holding a bloody bandage on the left side of his neck and somebody just puked over in the corner. After my daughter was checked in, I asked if we could wait out in the car. The screener replied, "... No, you have to wait in this room but, because of covid only one of you can remain with the patient. It's 2021 and restaurants have been using plastic pager pucks for 20 years! You would think that all of the ambulatory patients would be allowed to sit out in their vehicles instead of crowding 40 people with unknown ailments in the same room with each other? I just finished my coffee run for the wife. Daughter has already received her blood work so now it is the waiting game. 8 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
