  •  it varies a lot by hospital (12+ / 0-)

    when my mom fell I took to Holy Cross in Silver spring
    They had a special geriatrc emergency section.

    though when we were visiting my brother on the Eastern shore and suspected a clot me and my sister (who is an MD from another state) waiting in the  er with my Mom over 8 hours before anyone saw her

      There were stories, when I lived in Manhattan...many hours, especially on Friday and Saturday nights b/c of all the shootings/knifings.

      There's a lot less crime now than there was in the 1980s-early '90s, but it's a big city, and I think weekends are probably still the worst.
