Like anyone who has every been to the George Washington University Hospital Emergency Room, I've come to expect the average late night trip to the ER to last at the very least six hours. You signed in at nine pm? Don't expect to leave any earlier than 3am.
This past Saturday, when I checked into Suburban Hospital's ER it was 10:08. I was in the car, fully treated and on my way home by 12:08. Amazing.
While the doctors at GW may be significantly hotter (teaching hospitals do tend to bring in the young, hot, incredibly smart crowd), I think I'm going to have to say that I value efficiency over good looking interns.
