I remember twisting my ankle so bad many years ago it requried a trip to the ER.
The person who drove me was assisting me into the entrance of the ER.
There were Nurses, Drs... etc.... empty wheelchairs....
As soon as we walked/limped in.... no-one did anything.. let us go down this
LONG Hallway (about 100 feet) . When we sat down, someone came up to us
and asked do you need a wheelchair?
