"Ipswich emergency room"

About: Ipswich Hospital / Emergency Department

(as the patient),

I was waiting 4 hours and not seen by a nurse or doc. I even brought my own x-ray in. Couldn't be seen. My whole hand was numb and in pain. I think I could have seen an at home doctor just to find out if it's broken.

Next time I'll stay home and drink, I feel as though I'd get better pain relief.
