You need to go to the emergency room—how long are you going to have to wait? It’s not exactly a “take a number” process. Dr. Tom Miller talks to Dr. Robert Stephen about the process emergency rooms use to determine who gets seen first. They also discuss the different protocols put in place and what happens to waiting patients when the ER becomes too full.
