I now understand a little better why it takes SOOO long to see someone when you go to the ER. I promise, it's not usually the doctor's fault. It just take FOREVER for any labs or xrays to get done or be read. I promise we're not sitting playing on the internet (except for maybe right now, since I'm waiting for a bunch of results to come back) or trying to be slow.
But especially when it gets busy, results just come back VERY, very slowly. And so we can't know what to do, until we get all the information. Sadly.
Of course, it also seems that half of what gets ordered is probably overkill anyway...but I guess that's another post.
