Thanks to the link from KeepBreathing, it seems that many were interested in the 24 hours USA Today spent in a Virginia ER. The other day, I came across a similar article covering a day in the life of a New Zealand ER. What caught my eye was the different types of presentations treated in both settings. While the USA Today article focused on the ER in light of health care reform, it seems that the vast majority of patients down under arrive with what might be be considered more typical "emergencies."
Also, be sure to check out some of the great photos.
