    Don't work ED, but I scrub patients' charts to get psych and medical backgrounds when they enter OB care with us. I'm continually shocked/not shocked at how many young women call an ambulance to go to the ED for yeast infections and pregnancy confirmation.

    A lady came in with a splinter in her butt. A very generous butt to be sure. And had 5 family members with her.

    It it surprises me how many people think ER is primary care then complain about the wait for their clearly non-urgent issue.
