gee someone should tell the illegals that the er is for emergencies not their own personal outpatient clinic! They go to er's for colds flu minor illnesses because they are not asked to produce citizen ship documents or proof of insurance(taxpayer picks up the cost) and thye know that PUBLIC hospitals can not turn them away for treatment! So er's punish people that is why when you go to er you might as well block out at least a half day session. UNLESS you are priority heart attack or profuse bleeding(sometimes)
