    Does anyone know how old you have to be to volunteer at most hospitals? And what kinds of things can volunteers do? I will be 16 in August [I know that's kinda young] but I would much rather learn the ins and outs of hospitals than be flipping burgers at Micky D's. I am really great with kids [I have 8 siblings] and I would be willing to do almost anything. Any tips would be great.

    i am still in high school, but after i'm done i am going to nursing school. So last week, my 3yr. old brother fell off the toilet and whacked his head on the bathtub. He had a good sized hematoma on the back of his head, and my dad was going all crazy and said that we were going to take him to the er. He had no LOC, his pupils were normal, he wasn't nauseated, his pulse was normal, and other than the bump on his head and him crying he seemed fine. I told my dad that he didn't need to go to the er and i told him why, but my dad told me we were going and that i didn't know what i was talking about. Well, we got there and they got all the insurance info, took his vital signs[they were normal], and we waited forever. When one of the doctors came to see us, all she did was look him over and she gave him some tylenol. I felt sooo stupid for wasting the doctors and nurses time and i think that they thought that my dad was making a mountain out of a molehill. Was this a totally dumb reason to go to the er?
