What counts as an emergency? Say, the patient is calm and doesn't show any sign of injury BUT says "This is an emergency, please help me now" and the nurses disregard that, ask them to "Wait by the benches FOR YOUR TURN." For what turn? They can clearly attend to the patient right at that moment yet they ask them to wait? Conversely, I've also seen the other thing happen: Patient is bloodied and almost unconscious. And the nurses direct the family members to wait by the side for their turn. For What Turn. Is this a joke to them?
