Long wait experienced at ‘no-wait ER’
Napa Valley Register

I had an unsettling experience at the emergency room of St. Helena Hospital when my father and I went to get urgent care after he had injured his hand from a mishap with the seed broadcaster.

A large flap of skin had been torn off the back of his right hand and blood was everywhere. We both calmly realized that a trip to the “San” was our next task at hand.

“We are going to the ‘no-wait ER’ room as advertised all over the county,” I said to my father, “so we should be able to get your hand repaired in no time flat!”
