Between an elderly father and a bum gall bladder, I got to know the Boston ED’s pretty well a few years back. The wait was at least an hour or two, usually much longer.
So, I note that the Cambridge Health Alliance has taken to posting wait times. Of one minute.
Granted, if it’s something they can’t handle, you’re shipped off to Boston. But, FYI.
