Fortunately, I do not get a chance to go to the hospital that often. When I did go recently, I was at the Emergency Room Department for three hours. I took my sick son there because it was before my pediatrician's office was open. I ended up leaving after the three hours because I did not see a doctor yet. It didn't look busy and there was only three other people in the waiting room when I got there. I think that is horrible. I ended up just going to my son's pediatrician. I bet if I waited, it would have been a five hour trip. If they were quicker, it wouldn't be so bad.
