ER Waiting Game; Speed Up Your Treatment

We all know that wait times at the emergency room have gotten longer. But some good news on the ER wait, Marketwatch suggests some ways you can possibly speed up your treatment.

In the ER, give an honest account of your symptoms, but don't overstate them.

Tell a triage nurse if your condition worsens as you wait.

Make a list of your medications beforehand.

And ask to speak to someone in charge if you feel you're very sick and are not getting prompt care.
