Entitlement Reform

The other day, an otherwise healthy young guy accidently gave himself a half centimeter lac on the hand while slicing food at home and decided to do what any other sane, rational person would do in the same situation:

He called 911, had an ambulance deliver him to the Level I Trauma Center, waited an hour to be seen in Fast Track, refused to let the PA treat him, demanded a plastic surgeon suture the "wound," and waited another hour for the consult to arrive.

The plastics resident gave him some Dermabond and sent him on his way.
