This is a completely random question coming from someone who's not even in nursing school yet so forgive me if this is a dumb question. I've just always wondered this.
What is the busiest time in the ER? I heard that Mondays and weekends are busy but what about holidays? Perhaps after a holiday? Halloween? Christmas? Are there times of the year or seasons that tend to be especially bad? For instance during the winter when it gets dark and dreary do you get a lot of psych patients....In the summer do you get a lot of kids with injuries? Certain times throughout the day etc etc Or is it all just completely up in the air and anything can happen sort of thing?
