While I was in the ER, the ambulance called in with a 28 year old with a
spiral fracture of the arm. The ER arranged to have her taken to a larger
hospital in the next county to have it worked on by an orthopedic specialist
right away. My mother had been in the ER over an hour by then, and they
hadn't even gotten her to x-ray yet. Age discrimination lives.
