I have been several times. Mostly with my asthma. But I just don't like to go. They are so impersonal and ours is always cold as in the air temperature. The doctors and nurses are rude and just aren't very nice and comforting at all. Wish more were like the show scrubs that would be fun.

yes I have been there several times. The most memorable was when I went to visit my friend in Central California and we were out all day looking at houses and I drank some water but I guess not enough cause at dinner I started to feel very sick so my friends took to ER in Fresno, and it was very empty there it was just me and some girl who broke her leg when she fell off the horse so I think the doctors were bored cause they did Brain scan on me just in case but all it was is I was dehydraded.

Yep, i have been to emergency room. There's this one time that my both feet were cut by something under the river. It's a s big as an open eye and i think a half inch deep. At first, my parents decided to not bring mo to the hospital and just let my wound heal naturally. But it didn't stop bleeding so they were forced to bring me there and the doctor said that how come my parents decided not to bring me there, he said that the wounds were a serious one and need to be stitched.

Three years ago we rushed our 2 year old to the emergency room! I was in a panick... for seven hours we sat there, all while I cussed at the staff for making us wait! I thought my daughter had blood in her diaper and I was furious that someone with a sprained ankle was being seen first. My hubby's parents drove to the hospital, my best friend and her husband came to the hospital... MY MOTHER DROVE THREE HOURS to get to the hospital! It was red dye from her Kool Aid... that's all... I don't think I talked to anyone for days I was soooo humiliated. Beware! Children under 5 apparently don't absorb red food coloring very well!
