When is an injury serious enough that you will go to the ER?
one of the folks over in #deals.woot chat (not saying who or what unless they want to chime in) injured themselves. initially, the thought was 'go to the ER!'. that seems to have tapered down to either 'go to urgent care' or make a doctor's appointment.
personally, i've been to the ER once in my life. i was playing sand volleyball, went up for a jump serve and when i landed, i felt a really bad POP in my knee. my initial thought was to just make a doctor's appointment. my friends convinced me to go to the ER. I'll be honest, the only reason i went is because i knew i'd get looked at pretty quickly since i worked there (behind more serious cases but before others).
so, at what point do you consider an injury serious enough to go to the ER? (not counting having to call an ambulance or having one called for you)
