Oh no! What's wrong?

@CereBellum: yes pretty similar.

That particular finger needed about 10 stitches. Hurt like hell. I totally emphasize with your bf.

Oh no. We are waiting so we don't know how many stitches he's gonna get.

*sigh* last time i went it took 4 hours to see a doctor. And this was with their online 'apointment' settings which turned out to be a lie.

@1961dave: It was when the flu was going around pretty hard core. There were people vomiting.... not just one or two. It was so awful.
Depends how urgent it is

I broke my pelvis in a horse riding accident and the ambulance picked me up and didn't believe id broken anything. They carted me off to hospital and I had to wait 6 hours for an x ray. Found out I had broke my pelvis.

Damn lucetta, that had to have been very painful!

@1961dave: I didn't feel a thing. I only knew I'd broken something because I couldn't walk. That's probably why they thought I hadn't broke anything. Pain doesn't bother me.

Last year I took my wife to the ER at the Beth Israel hospital in Boston and we waited 6 hours. The triage unit decides how quickly a person needs care.

@life14: they ended up admitting her - she had a UTI

sorry but it dependents on who is in front of you. The nurses assess everyone and the most urgent cases get seen first. Hope you're not waiting much longer though

Tell them your boyfriend is starting to feel nauseous; not wanting him to throw-up in the waiting room, they will probably bring him back to an exam room.

When I went to the ER for double pneumonia I was in incredible pain. I couldn't believe the people they let go before me. Until they took my X-rays they were in no hurry.

I hate urgent care. They are so limited and always send you over to the emergency room.
