When my toddler fell on his face and we thought he'd broken his nose, we took our first trip to the ER. I was defnitely bunkering in for a long night, when the admitting doctor pulled us aside. He did a quick check in the waiting area, told me that it was not broken, what to watch for, and gave me a list of medications and dosages (just for general use in the future).
He signed me out and saved me a night in the hospital as well as an outrageous bill.
There are good and honest people in this world. I met one and he works in the Methodist ER.
