If you have to take someone to the Urgent Treatment Center, I suggest driving behind the pizza delivery guy. By virtue of his speeding and erratic weaving, he makes pedestrians reluctant to use the mid-block crosswalk. No more traffic backups waiting for the Snail Family to cross!
Once you’re at the UTC, I suggest that the patient vomit on the floor of the lobby in order to get a nurse to put them in a room to be seen immediately. This works equally well at any emergency room. Some patients are polite and ask for a sick bag or trashcan. Some are shy and vomit in the commode with the door locked for privacy. These patients are missing the point. You want to be SEEN by the doctor – you don’t want to WAIT in the lobby. Straight out floor vomiting guarantees you will be removed from that lobby.
