The point of having urgent care facilities is to relieve the overcrowding of hospitals when it is not an emergency.
I went to an urgent care with my daughter and was told to go to the hospital for a CT scan. I waited 11 hours for her to be seen at LIJ. All this could have been avoided if the urgent care doctor could have called the hospital and order her a CT scan. We would have been in and out far less of a time.
There is a great concern as to how our hospitals are running. We are not getting the service we deserve. I do hope someone reading this will do something about our medical and hospitals. We are going down the wrong path.
