If you have kids, you’ve probably waited in an emergency room for several hours in order to get a prescription for your sick child. We all have busy lives, and the last thing we want to do is waste a day at the emergency. I can’t even count how many days I had to take off work to bring my kids to the emergency or to see my doctor. Most of the time, at my own expense. Not counting the few times I was sick.
