5 most commonly broken bones that are frequent in ERs
from Medical Daily
Broken bones are among the most common reasons people visit the emergency room (ER). The national average wait time patients spend in the ER before being seen by a doctor is 24 minutes, while the average wait time to receive pain medications for broken bones is 55 minutes, according to the nonprofit organization ProPublica. Luckily, while patients wait to receive medical assistance, bones immediately begin depositing calcium at the site of the fracture.
