Drive Through ER
The Drive Through Emergency Room. An idea I discussed when it was first trialed back in fall 2009 during early stages of the Swine Flu Scare. After reading several articles discussing this trial, it seems that it worked smoothly enough, particularly would be good to break out during a pandemic, or even yearly flu epidemic. This would keep infectious people out of the crowded ED waiting room and speed through put times during a taxing period.
Although some parts of this blog may be based on real life events, the patients represented are either completely fictional characters, or the details of the clinical circumstances are so drastically changed that a connection should never be made with an actual person or event. Those seeking to make such a connection would do better to look inside their own hearts and in their own communities because this blog is about a large part of America
