Emergency Room Insider Info You Should Know
You’re allowed to ask questions
The staff seems rushed and they are, but you’re allowed to ask questions. If they say they’re going to run a test, you can ask what the test is for. If they say they’re giving you a medication, you can ask what it is for. If they use a term you don’t understand, you can ask them to translate. They will answer—they’ll never say, “I don’t have time for this.” You have a right to know what’s going on with your own health.
