How the system works

Posted By on Thu, Oct 12, 2017 at 4:30 PM

Emergency departments are for emergencies. Sickest people are seen first. If you end up waiting many hours it is usually because there are people sicker than you who need help first. When staff are helping critically ill patients, or comforting families who have lost loved ones, it is unfair and inappropriate to stand there, sipping your Tim Hortons, and yell about how long you have been waiting. You weren't dying, but some people are. —FYI
