In Chicago we have a hospital called Children’s Memorial Hospital. It has a trauma center and a 24 hour emergency room. There are even signs that say that (you know the blue signs with the H that tell you if you’re driving a hospital is nearby.
So what happens if I, an adult, have a heart attack or get hit by a bullet outside their emergency room? Do they treat me or call 911 and ship me to Grant or Illinois Masonic which are farther away.
If they don’t treat adults then why should we put up a sign indicating that there is an ER nearby that won’t treat most people. And also can there really be enough customers to warrent an ER for kids only. I mean if my kid broke his leg I’d take him to the nearest ER not let him sit in pain till I drove 20 minutes to get one that specializes in kids.
